Libertarian Party Candidate's #LetHerSpeak Campaign Is a Bid to Get Her On The Debate Stage

Headline Roundup August 9th, 2020

On Saturday morning, groups of people marched nationwide in support of Jo Jorgensen's #LetHerSpeak campaign, an effort to convince the Commission on Presidential Debates to allow the Libertarian Party presidential candidate to participate in the 2020 debates. "If the GOP were able to have 10+ people at their debates in 2016 and the Democrats were able to have 20+ people during their 2020 debates, why are we now limited to two candidates at the most important debates?" Jorgensen tweeted. A total of 107 #LetHerSpeak rallies were expected to occur on Aug. 8. Jorgenson gained some Twitter buzz on Saturday for her #LetHerSpeak campaign and for reports that she had to skip an event over the weekend to get tested for rabies after a bat bit her.

As of Sunday morning, coverage of Jorgensen's #LetHerSpeak campaign is scarce across all sides of the political spectrum; the rallies are being covered primarily by local newsrooms and right-rated outlets. Coverage of Jorgensen's bat incident gained more substantial coverage from many major news outlets across the political spectrum.

After a mic check, Jorgensen is introduced and begins to speak.

Almost immediately, her speech covers the two most pressing topics of the summer: criminal justice reform and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Who’s running for president? If you answered incumbent President Donald Trump and presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, you’re wrong.

There are actually two additional candidates running for the presidency, though Democrats across the country are desperately trying to keep this fact hidden.

One of these two candidates, Libertarian Party nominee Jo Jorgensen, is hellbent on convincing the Commission on Presidential Debates to allow her to participate in the highly anticipated 2020 debates.
