Libertarian presidential candidate Jo Jorgensen visited Madison on Saturday as part of her “Real Change for Real People” campaign tour to promote her platform as a third party candidate.
In a one-on-one interview with The Daily Cardinal before her visit, Jorgensen stressed how important Wisconsin is in the 2020 election, drawing upon lessons learned from 2016.
“[Wisconsin] played an important role in the last election, and in the last election, the Democrats didn’t think Wisconsin was worth visiting,” Jorgensen said.
After traveling the country, Jorgensen believes her small government approach will appeal to both Wisconsinites and the rest of America. Jorgensen said a major lesson she learned on the campaign trail was that Americans “are fed up with the government making every single decision in their lives.”
