As America’s 2020 presidential campaign cycle reaches the finish line on election day, Libertarian Dr. Jo Jorgensen’s campaign of “real change for real people” will gather to thank supporters, volunteers, and staff, and to celebrate its achievements of appearing on the ballot in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, reaching voters discontented with the two dominant parties, and urging those very opponents to reconsider their ill-conceived, shared promise to increase the size, scope, and reach of the federal government and its interference in Americans’ lives.
Local media nationwide having enthusiastically covered the campaign’s 48-state campaign rallies and bus tours by both candidates, and having been a vital part of effecting the campaign’s voter outreach, media in the Dallas area are invited and encouraged to attend and cover the event and speeches, and interview the candidates and other Libertarian leaders present. Media outside the Dallas area are encouraged to watch the event via live-stream and to request remote telephone or video-conferenced interviews.
Tuesday, November 3: Doors open at 7 P.M. CST. Events runs from 8 until midnight, local time.
Speeches will be delivered throughout the evening. Dr. Jo Jorgensen is tentatively slated to address the gathering at 9:15 P.M. CST. (subject to change and in consideration of periodic reporting of election returns)
