Hillary Clinton had a rally at Fanueil Hall. Donald Trump held a fundraising luncheon in the Financial District. Now, it’s the Libertarians’ turn to woo the people of Boston.

Presidential nominee Gov. Gary Johnson and his running mate, former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, will hold the ticket’s first Boston rally at the bandstand in the Common this Saturday. The pair will take questions from the audience, according to the event page.

Johnson has an apparent affinity for former Republican Mass. governors. In a recent interview, he said that Mitt Romney, who received the Republican Party nomination in 2012 but has refused to support Trump, would play a role in his administration, if elected president.

“If Mitt Romney wants to be a part of the administration, that would be a guarantee,” Johnson said. “I think [the position] would be for Mitt Romney to decide…and I say that with reverence to his skills as a business person and having run the Olympics.”

Johnson and Weld will make several stops across New England before arriving in the Hub, with similar rallies scheduled for Burlington, Vermont, on Wednesday, and the New Hampshire State House steps on Thursday.
