2020 Libertarian presidential candidate Jo Jorgensen released the following statement today concerning the next Libertarian presidential debate tomorrow and various campaign updates:
One week from today, the Libertarian National Convention will come to order, online rather than in Austin. I have one week to reach every delegate and alternate and convince them I’m the right person to represent the party.
Several debates and forums will help with this over the coming week.
The most critical is the debate Saturday night (8-10 pm Eastern), sponsored by the Libertarian Parties of Kentucky and Missouri, along with We Are Libertarians. Matt Welch of Reason Magazine will moderate. Representative Amash is confirmed to attend. The audience should be the largest yet!
Make sure to vote in the post-debate polls! If you are a national convention delegate or alternate, you need to complete an online survey to opt-in to the delegate poll. To complete the survey, go to LPKY.org/survey. There will be a second poll open to all viewers, which we encourage you to also vote in.
I finished second In the most recent delegate poll, and came within striking distance of Rep. Amash. The poll used Instant Runoff Voting, similar to the voting process used in convention. As candidates with less support were dropped, I gained the most support of any candidate, more even than Rep. Amash. I aim to finish first this time!
And there are more events this week!
Tonight (Friday May 15) the Libertarian Party of Michigan will host an AMA with Jo Jorgensen and Jacob Hornberger. I’ll be on from 7:00 – 8:00 pm Eastern, followed by Jacob from 8:00 – 9:00 pm. While only LPMI members can ask questions, anyone can watch.
Monday at 8:00 pm Eastern, the Libertarian Party of Texas will host their debate. The final details will be posted on their convention page.
Tuesday at 8:00 pm Eastern, I’ll debate Jacob Hornberger, Adam Kokesh, and Vermin Supreme, hosted by the Lions of Liberty. Rep. Amash has not yet confirmed.
I have the momentum needed to beat Justin Amash! Help me win!
Make a donation so I can win the nomination and come out strong.
Ask other delegates in your state to support me. If they want to hear from me directly, let me know and I’ll reach out to them. If they want to see me in action, they can view last Saturday’s debate, the only debate Rep. Amash has been in.
Just one week left until the delegates vote. The finish line is in sight. With your support, I’ll secure the Libertarian nomination! Thank you!
