The campaign of 2020 Libertarian Party presidential nominee Jo Jorgensen today sent out the following newsletter to email subscribers. This is the first issue.
Hat Trick in Alaska
– Jo’s visit makes top of the fold in four state newspapers.
– Jo gets back on the ice for a pick up game with locals.
– Jo speaks at the Juneau Planning Commission meeting, in support of on-site consumption of marijuana regulations.
Jo made headline news in Alaska this week. The Ketchikan Daily News was just one of the many media outlets that covered Jo’s return to the campaign trail and how her platform represents Alaska.
Dr. Jo Jorgensen said the decision to visit Alaska was because of the state’s strong historical support for the party. “It’s on the campaign trail for Libertarians because Alaska is a very libertarian country,” she said.

Ways to get involved!
There are many ways you can get involved with the Jorgensen/Cohen campaign – you can learn more on our Volunteer Hub about areas where you can help now, including:
– Events: We need volunteers to help organize and manage events around the country.
– Calling and Texting: With our current volunteers, we’ll be able to call at least 10,000,000 voters between now and the election. Can you help us make that 20 million – or 30?
– Distributing Literature: In these days of social distancing there are still some opportunities to connect with voters personally.
There are more ways to help being added every week. In particular, watch for links to how you can help locally with your state and county teams on the Volunteer Hub soon.
