Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson may not be well-known nationally, but he's considering a run for president.

Last week, the two-term Republican governor made his second trip to Iowa. He's visited New Hampshire four times.

Both states are key to presidential candidates because they kick off the nominating process.

Johnson acknowledges he's little known but says his libertarian views could be what voters are seeking.

He wants to cut taxes and slash spending, including reductions to Medicare and Medicaid. He also supports legalizing marijuana and allowing civil unions for gays and lesbians.

Johnson says politicians don't understand the depth of voter anger that has given radically different candidate a chance of winning.
