Heavy.com reveals that Jo Jorgensen Wins Libertarian Nomination; Vermin Supreme Places 3rd. Libertarians may wish to encourage more news outlets to follow this trend and skip from 1st to 3rd in reporting the November results.

Channel 2 CBS Chicago plays the local angle: Illinois Native Jo Jorgensen Elected As Libertarian Presidential Candidate.
Fox News: Libertarians pick first female presidential nominee gives their “fair and balanced” perspective. They start by saying “Jo Jorgensen is touting that she’s the “freedom” candidate” with scare quotes and go on to predict that “even her odds of playing a spoiler role appear slim.” Like their likewise heavily Republican-leaning friends at the Washington Times they say “The psychologist and grandmother is the first woman to top the party’s presidential ticket.” What’s the over/under on them making similar note of the fact that Trump and Biden are grandfathers when discussing their nominations?
