Although the Libertarian Party nominated Dr. Jo Jorgensen as their presidential nominee in late May 2020, it was not until yesterday, July 10, 2020, she could officially accept the nomination with a speech to the delegates. The Libertarian Party has held a bifurcated convention this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The party was originally scheduled to hold its convention in Austin, Texas this past May; however, the pandemic made that a near impossibility, so it held a virtual presidential nomination convention and is now doing its physical national convention in Orlando, Florida.

The Libertarian Party is holding its national convention in Orlando, Florida this week through Sunday, July 12, 2020. Some delegates are physically present, while some delegates are voting on party business online for the first time in the party’s history. Those who are not delegates can watch Day 3 of the convention via the party’s YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/LibertarianParty.
Jorgensen will face likely presidential nominees, Joe Biden and Donald Trump in the November 3, 2020, general election. She was the 1996 Libertarian Party’s Vice-Presidential candidate alongside presidential nominee Harry Browne.
Jorgensen is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Clemson University. She holds a Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology (Clemson, 2002) and has taught full time since 2006. She is also a successful entrepreneur owning a software duplication company.
Jeremy “Spike” Cohen is the Libertarian Party’s 2020 Vice-presidential nominee, running with Dr. Jo Jorgensen, the LP’s presidential nominee. He promotes a vision of common-sense Libertarian solutions that will make us all more free, safe, and prosperous.
Cohen started a web design company in 1999. He retired from that 3 years ago to promote libertarian ideas fulltime. His great aim is to make people more familiar with voluntary solutions and property rights.
