While we all know Hillary Clinton was the first woman to be featured as the Top of Major-Party Presidential ballot in the United States and be on the ballot in all 50 states.
Lenora Fulani was the first woman to appear on the ballot in all 50 states. She also had received the most votes for any woman running for president until Jill Stein in 2012, which was then surpassed by Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Few may realize Jo Jorgensen; the Libertarian presidential nominee, first appeared on all 50 state ballots as Harry Browne's running mate in 1996.
Since then, the Libertarian Party is the only party to have achieved universal ballot access in a presidential election.
Jo Jorgensen achieved universal ballot access for the 2020 election earlier this week.
This achievement makes it the second time Jo Jorgensen has appeared in print on all 50 states + DC and territories ballots.
To my research, this is an unprecedented moment in history. Not for the sake of Jo Jorgensen merely being a woman but rather because she is not a former Republican or Democrat who has recently joined the Libertarian Party to use the party name to achieve ballot access.
This lack of prior name recognition has allowed many mainstream media outlets to write off the Jorgensen campaign.
Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to sit down and discuss some of the topics of interest this 2020 election that I had not heard Jo answer prior; the interview transcript is here.
