Dr. Jo Jorgensen, the Libertarian Party’s 1996 nominee for Vice-President, will debate former Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee at the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire Convention in Concord. The debate is scheduled to begin at 10:45 am Saturday, January 11 at the Holiday Inn.
Dr. Jorgensen and Governor Chafee are both seeking the 2020 Presidential nomination of the Libertarian Party.
“I welcome Governor Chafee to the race for our party’s Presidential nomination. I look forward to hearing his current views on the issues that face our nation, and how those compare to the views he has advocated in the past.”
Governor Chafee previously held office in Rhode Island as a Republican and as an Independent, and unsuccessfully sought the Democratic nomination for President in 2016.
As the Libertarian Party’s nominee for Vice-President, Dr. Jorgensen campaigned in 32 states and made over 300 media appearances. “As a standard-bearer for the Libertarian Party, I am advocating specific, practical policy proposals to address the problems facing our nation – proposals that dramatically reduce the size and power of the federal government and increase individual liberty.”
Dr. Jorgensen is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Clemson University, and resides in Greenville, South Carolina.
The convention and debate will be held at the Holiday Inn 172 N Main St., Concord, NH, 03301. Additional candidates will be included.
Dr. Jorgensen will be available for interviews in Concord after 1:00 pm Friday. To schedule an interview, contact campaign manager Joe Hauptmann.
