Dr. Jo Jorgensen delivers the Natural State her message of greater individual freedom
GREENVILLE, S.C.; Aug. 28, 2020— Dr. Jo Jorgensen, the Libertarian presidential nominee, visits Little Rock on Friday to rally supporters and speak to media. She will speak on her plan to reduce the size of the federal government, end the war on drugs, and recall U.S. military men and women home to defend America’s own shores.
Jorgensen wants to restore to the presidency such conservative principles as small government, individual rights, and personal freedom.
“Republicans don’t have to settle for a Republican in name only, and they don’t have to hold their noses and vote for a Democrat, either,” she said. “I am happy to provide a fiscally responsible, small-government option to these disaffected voters.”
Also being featured at the Little Rock rally will be former Libertarian National Committee Chair Nicholas Sarwark and Ricky Dale Harrington, Jr., Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate.
Harrington’s campaign aligns with Dr. Jorgensen’s pledge to end the drug war; he believes people shouldn’t be in prison if their so-called crime had no victim. “They should be dealing with a doctor or a therapist,” he said, “not be thrown into prison, where they’re subjected to gangs, abuse, sexual assault, or mental health issues.”
Dr. Jorgensen’s campaign stop in Little Rock features down-ticket candidates, includes media availability, and is scheduled as follows (subject to change; times shown in local time zone):
Friday, August 28; Little Rock, Arkansas
5 P.M.: First Security Amphitheatre, 400 President Clinton Ave.
