Jorgensen Off the Campaign Trail After Mother’s Death

Libertarian Party presidential nominee Jo Jorgensen’s mother died this past Wednesday, according to campaign manager Steve Dasbach.  The unexpected death, which Jorgensen learned about as she boarded a plane, required Jorgensen to exit the campaign trail temporarily.  She was scheduled to appear in Alaska this week.

Dasbach asks for you to keep Jorgensen and her family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Libertarian Congressman Justin Amash and Libertarian National Committee Chairman Joe Bishop-Henchman were among those offering condolences to Jorgensen.

“May your mother’s memory be eternal,” tweeted Amash.

“As anyone who has lost a parent can understand,” Bishop-Henchman wrote, “it can be challenging to mourn while carrying out full daily obligations.  As she takes some time to be with her family, we express to her our support, our love, and our compassion.”

In the meantime, the campaign continues with Dasbach at the helm.

“[Jorgensen] will return shortly,” says Dasbach.  “[She] will not allow anything to stop her from serving as the voice of liberty in the 2020 election.”

According to the Juneau Empire, Jorgensen will return to the campaign trail on Tuesday with a pick-up hockey game and a barbecue meet-and-greet in Juneau, Alaska.

    Sorry to hear of Dr. Jorgensen’s loss. I appreciate her returning to the campaign so soon. I look forward to voting for her in November.

    Jorgensen taking time off the campaign trail… will anyone notice? This has been the quietest LP campaign in the last 40 years. Come on… make some waves gurl… it’s not the Librarian Party!

    Such a lost opportunity. She even makes me miss Michael Badnarik.

    It’s too late. She’s just too *nice*. You can’t make Arvin Vohra out of Marian the Librarian. He’s who we should have nominated! He never dared to speak the truth.

    Wow! I have to believe there is a typo. “He never dared to speak the truth.” Why would you want a person like that to represent the party?
