Libertarian presidential nominee Jo Jorgenson made multiple campaign stops in Maine this weekend just a few weeks ahead of the 2020 General Election. 

Jorgenson stopped at Bug Light Park in Portland Friday evening and made more campaign stops across the state Saturday.

Jorgenson is one of three third party candidates that Mainers will see on their ballots. In addition to Republican incumbent President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee former Vice President Joe Biden, Howie Hawkins of the Green Party and Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente of the Alliance Party will also appear on the ballots.

More than 100 people gathered at the Bangor Waterfront Saturday morning to hear Jorgensen speak in a question-and-answer-style event, touching on issues such as gun rights, taxes, and education reform.

After the event, she spent some time with the press, answering questions about ranked-choice voting, the Libertarian Party, and why she feels she should be at the Presidential Debates. 

The Libertarian Party used the event to spread the party’s platform and allow for people to sign up and register with the party as it hopes to become a permanent party on future ballots.

“I’m the only one that understands that you know best what’s best for you,” Jorgensen said. “I understand that you know better how to spend your money better than any politician or bureaucrat in Washington.”
