Fred Karger — the first openly gay Republican presidential candidate to be completely ignored by the GOP establishment and the mainstream media — sits down with our very own Mary Phillips-Sandy to discuss America's first LGBT president a century-and-a-half ago, the anti-gay rhetoric of the modern Republican Party, and accusations of fun from Rick Santorum…

Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson — despite most evidence to the contrary — is actually running for the actual Republican nomination for president, in between watching his neighbor's dogs. He sat down with our very own Mary Phillips-Sandy in the heart of the Indecision HQ to discuss a number of things, such as home state popularity, legalizing marijuana, Willie Nelson, gluten-free pizza and The Gary Johnson Rule.
Previously: Watch our Undercision 2012 interview with former GOP nominee Rep. Thaddeus McCotter.

Who won last night's GOP debate? In terms of the betterment of democracy, that's a tough call. Maybe we all lost. In terms of zingers, though, the clear winner was former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson, who brought down the house with this line: "My next-door neighbor's two dogs have created more shovel-ready jobs than this current administration."
As it happens, Gov. Johnson dropped by the Indecision offices a few days before the debate to participate in the second installment of our exclusive Undercision 2012 series. At the time we shot this interview he had not yet been invited to join the other GOP candidates on stage in Orlando — so naturally, we asked him why he's been missing from the debates.
Here's what he had to say about that…
Full interview coming soon, with more on Gov. Johnson's underdog campaign and why courting the stoner vote may be a lost cause.

As is explicitly obvious to anyone who spends even a few minutes a week watching or reading the national media, Thaddeus McCotter is the Republican representative from Michigan's 11th district who has mounted a much-ballyhooed campaign for the presidency. Newspaper reporters are always going "Thaddeus McCotter said this," and cable news pundits are always going "Thaddeus McCotter shook that." Thaddeus McCotter's campaign is — to put it lightly — the media topic of the electoral season.
Oh, wait. Everything that I just said, scratch it. I meant the opposite.
But, Thaddeus McCotter is the very first interviewee in our brand new feature "Undercision 2012: Running with the Underdogs" — in which we seek to shine some light on some candidates and campaigns that are maybe a little lacking in media attention — so that something. Here's Indecision's own Mary Phillips-Sandy and the distinguished gentleman from Michigan…
Keep your eye out for more exclusive Undercision coverage in the weeks and months ahead.
