Presidential nominee to meet supporters, voters, media
GREENVILLE, S.C.; October 2, 2020— Libertarian presidential nominee Dr. Jo Jorgensen is today taking her campaign bus tour to New Hampshire. The excursion follows on the heels of Jorgensen’s successful campaign events earlier this week: a #FakeDebates event in Cleveland and a policy discussion near D.C. with Rep. Justin Amash (L–Mich.), plus a well attended rally with supporters yesterday in Wilmington, Del.
Dr. Jorgensen said the leaf-peeping timing of her New England visit this fall is fitting.
“The seasons of nature are analogous to our electoral seasons: they’re both predictable,” said Jorgensen. “Of course with elections, we can’t always predict the actual winner, but we can sure predict that the two dominant candidates will make the same stale promises—which in turn we can predict will mushroom the federal government. It’s about time we see some real, fundamental change.
“A vote for Jorgensen is a bold message that you’re tired of the same predictable cycle of bigger government every four years; it’s a demand for real solutions for real Americans, a demand to return to our founding principles—and frankly, a demand to get the big, bossy, nosy government off your back.”
Jorgensen’s platform includes creating a truly free market in health care—optimizing people’s chances against a virus during a pandemic; reuniting families both by freeing nonviolent, victimless drug offenders and bringing our troops home from needless involvement in foreign wars; and repealing all federal gun-control laws enacted over the past 100 years.
Featured speakers at a midday rally in Keene will include Justin O’Donnell, candidate for U.S. senate, and Darryl Perry, running for governor. On the program at a midafternoon rally in Manchester will be LP New Hampshire Vice Chair Richard Manzo, and immediate past LNC Chair Nicholas Sarwark, who is running for attorney of Hillsboro County.
The Libertarian Party (LP) down-ballot candidates on yesterday evening’s program in Wilmington were enthusiastic about the woman at the top of their ticket.
“When I first met Dr. Jorgensen at the 2018 national LP convention, I could tell right away that she is a giant for individual liberty,” said Dayl Thomas, running for city council in Wilmington (Dist. 7). “Every Delaware Libertarian is thrilled with her visit to the First State, and we are working hard to see her win on November 3.”
“Jo Jorgensen would be a great president who would respect everyone’s personal liberties,” said David Rogers, running for U.S. House to represent Delaware’s at-large congressional district. “I would love to work with her as a member of congress.”
Dr. Jorgensen’s campaign rallies in New Hampshire feature down-ticket candidates, include media availability, and are scheduled as follows (subject to change; times shown in local time zone):
Friday, October 2; Keene, N.H.
11:15 A.M.: Keene Central Square, Central Square Street (Washington Street side)
