Libertarian presidential nominee Jo Jorgensen rallies supporters in Oklahoma, Missouri
GREENVILLE, S.C.; August 11, 2020— Dr. Jo Jorgensen, the Libertarian presidential nominee, will be visiting America’s heartland this week to meet with voters, local leaders, and media.
Jorgensen and the Libertarian Party (LP) are diligently working towards ballot access in all 50 states. Yesterday Maine’s elections officals approved the Libertarian ticket, and on Friday, Ballot Access Newsreported the Libertarian ticket has been approved for inclusion on Alaska’s November ballot, putting Jorgensen–Cohen on the ballot in 40 states so far, plus the District of Columbia.
According to Bob Johnston, the national LP’s candidate and affiliate support specialist, the Libertarian presidential ticket has appeared nationwide in four of the last ten election cycles. “With the Maine petition now done,” said Johnston, “there is a good chance that this year, the presidential ticket will appear on all 50 state ballots plus D.C.”
Dr. Jorgensen’s platform calls for reducing the size of the federal government, recalling U.S. military men and women home to defend America’s own shores, and removing government barriers to competition in the energy industry, leading to further innovation in clean-energy technologies such as nuclear power.
Jorgensen believes big government is paid for with our freedom. She explained, “Individual freedom and government power are polar opposites. More government means less freedom. More taxes, more regulations, more laws, more policies, more programs, more government employees and more government spending…all grow at the expense of our freedom.”
The events are part of a 16-day, 20-city campaign bus tour that launched on the first of August. On Friday, the campaign bus will head to North Carolina before concluding the tour in South Carolina on Sunday.
