Presidential candidate and Libertarian Party nominee Doctor Jo Jorgensen and her #BrakeTheBus tour stopped at Centennial Park for the first rally of the Tennessee leg. Approximately 300 people attended the socially distanced event.
On August 6th, Clemson University Senior Psychology Lecturer and Libertarian POTUS candidate Dr. Jo Jorgensen held the campaign’s first Tennessee rally at Centennial Park in Nashville. Dr. Jorgensen is a Life Member of the Libertarian Party, the third-largest political party in the country. The Libertarian Party boasts over 600,00 active members and the LP’s 2016 candidate Gary Johnson garnered 4,488,931 votes nationally with 70,397 coming from Tennessee.
According to Jorgensen’s Nashville Coordinator Justin Cornett, at least 296 people attended the rally. Opening speakers were new LP member and Nashville resident Celeste LeReau followed by longtime party member, 2018 Tennessee Governor candidate, and former Wilson County Commissioner Heather Scott.
Dr. Jo covered a myriad of topics like healthcare insurance reform, criminal justice reform, ending the war on drugs, abolishing civil asset forfeiture, and the immediate removal of our troops from foreign soil. After speaking, Jorgensen even took questions from the audience.
Tennessee Campaign Manager for Jo Jorgensen Suzi Eltz told Scoop “Yesterday’s Jo Jorgensen rally in Nashville was a testament to the change Americans are desperate for; Jo’s bold vision and a hunger for less government.” Anyone interested in getting involved with the Dr. Jo Jorgensen campaign in Tennessee can visit www.jo20.com/volunteer and anyone interested in the Libertarian Party can visit www.LPTN.org or www.LP.org.
