Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson wrapped up his campaign at home in New Mexico.

The former two-time New Mexico governor joined sign-waving supporters Tuesday outside the state Capitol in Santa Fe.

Johnson says his campaign with running mate Bill Weld has made a lasting impression by promoting limited government and greater personal liberty. A 5 percent showing at the polls by Johnson could establish public funding for future Libertarian candidates.

Johnson's candidacy strained traditional party loyalties in New Mexico.
