Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, a libertarian-leaning Republican running for president in 2012 — like Shepard in the movie — isn’t married either. But he’s engaged.
This potential first lady — or shall we say, first fiancé — is Kate Prusack, a Santa Fe realtor Johnson met while on a bike ride. Prusack, 58, is a 1976 graduate of Goddard College in Vermont, according to the Johnson campaign.
They’ve been dating for three years and have been engaged for a year and a half. Like the 58-year-old Johnson — an avid sportsman who has climbed Mt. Everest — she bikes, hikes and skis. In fact, the couple was engaged on the chair lift at Taos, a ski resort in New Mexico.
