Libertarian vice presidential candidate Judge Jim Gray made a campaign stop in Mahwah Wednesday
Libertarian vice presidential candidate Jim Gray believes that he and presidential candidate, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, can beat the two major party candidates for president, he told a group of about two dozen students and residents at Ramapo College in Mahwah Wednesday morning.
