From the outset of his campaign, Gary Johnson was the longest of long shots.
But in a tight race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Johnson netted several hundred thousand votes in key states.
In New Hampshire, where Trump and Clinton were only 4,000 votes apart, Johnson received 25,000 votes, based on preliminary returns.
During an election night party in New Mexico, where he served as governor from 1995 to 2003, Johnson thanked supporters.
“We have a lot to celebrate, a lot to celebrate. This is a celebration,” Johnson said.
In Michigan late Tuesday night, the race between Clinton and Trump was being decided by less than 100,000 votes, and Johnson received nearly 150,000 votes.
“There is going to be a third voice in this country” moving forward, Johnson told his supporters.
