Libertarians are making history

The Libertarian Party did something historic by nominating its first female presidential candidate in the first online nominating convention for a national party. I’m extremely excited that the party nominated Dr. Jo Jorgensen for president and Spike Cohen for vice president.

These are two very intelligent individuals who have an incredible way of communicating the issues that currently plague our country. Jorgensen has a Ph.D. in industrial/organizational psychology, is a senior lecturer at Clemson University, is a successful business owner, and a former Libertarian vice presidential candidate in 1996 to Presidential candidate Harry Browne.

This is the first presidential ticket in United States history to feature a millennial. I implore everyone, before casting your vote this November, to look up these two candidates and hear out what they have to say. Please don’t vote on fear of Joe Biden or fear of Donald Trump, but rather because you believe in the message that they speak. Jorgensen and Cohen speak a message that inspires me and I believe will inspire many others. If you’re interested in finding out more, please visit joj2020.com or you can email me at marcobattaglia@protonmail.com to get involved in the local party.
