GREENVILLE, S.C.; Aug. 28, 2020— On Friday Libertarian presidential nominee Dr. Jo Jorgensen will speak to a sold-out rally taking place during the Libertarian Party of Colorado’s 2020 Focus on Liberty UNConvention.
Touring across the country for her “Real Change for Real People“ campaign, Jorgensen has garnered support for her Libertarian platform of reducing the size of the federal government, ending the war on drugs, providing a Social Security opt-out program, and eliminating government regulations that hamper competition and innovation in clean-energy technologies.
“I will work to remove government barriers to replacing coal-burning and oil-burning power plants in the U.S. with safe, non-polluting, high-tech nuclear power plants – and allowing off-grid use of solar power,” Jorgensen said about her free-market solutions. “Most pollution is generated in developing countries, so reducing pollution worldwide requires cost-efficient, zero-emission energy sources like nuclear.”
“We warmly welcome Jo Jorgensen to the great state of Colorado, the birthplace of the Libertarian Party, where America’s love for individual freedom was reborn nearly 50 years ago,” said Libertarian Party (LP) of Colorado State Chairman, Victoria Reynolds. “She may have launched her presidential campaign in South Carolina, but it is in Colorado where she will show America that she can stick her landing.”
Also set to speak at the UNConvention is LP U.S. Senate candidate, Raymon Doane, who says the LP provides an alternative to the duopoly and that the LP’s policies of greater liberty and personal responsibility having the best track record for delivering prosperity. “It really moves beyond affiliation,” said Doane. “The difference is whether a party’s policies wind up making people suffer, or helping them to thrive.”
In the evening following the rally, Jorgensen will attend the sold-out 1920s evening Gala and banquet.
