Recently, the Libertarian Party candidate for President of the United States, Gary Johnson, was kicked off the ballot in Michigan. There is currently a pending court challenge to get him back on. However, if that fails, the campaign has figured out a lateral-thinking way to get his name on the ballot anyway. What did they do?

No googling, please. Could be a quickie, but if you've already heard about this, stay out and email me if you want to confirm.

Write-ins relevant? Will another candidate with the same name run?

Write-ins relevant? Will another candidate with the same name run? YES!!!

****SPOILER ****

If Gary Johnson is kept off the ballot after the Michigan Supreme Court declares such, then the Libertarian Party will put Texas Businessman Gary E. Johnson on the ballot instead. All electors who win will vote for Governor Johnson. Good job Balin! That was qkci!

Lucky guess -- good puzzle. And strange, the white space.
