(The Hill) Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson said he's been in discussions with the 2012 GOP nominee and is hopeful of an endorsement.
"I think he's considering the possibility of doing this," Johnson said in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer Thursday. "Actually endorsing the two of us," he said, referring to his running mate, Bill Weld.

"He's thinking about it, Wolf," Weld said.
