Presidential Nominee Visits Collierville


Jo Jorgensen, the Libertarian Party’s nominee for president of the United States in the 2020 election, spoke at Collierville VFW Post 5066 last week. 

She formally launched her campaign at the Nov. 2, 2019 Libertarian Party of South Carolina convention, before participating in the official South Carolina Libertarian presidential debate the same day. 

On May 23, Jorgensen became the official Libertarian presidential nominee, making her the first woman to become the Libertarian nominee and the only female 2020 presidential candidate with ballot access to more than 270 electoral votes. 

She was previously the party’s nominee for vice president in the 1996 U.S. presidential election.
