by Casey Chapter, Tallahassee Democrat 

Libertarian presidential candidate Jo Jorgensen visited Florida State University's campus Saturday and addressed a crowd of roughly 50 people made up of college students, Tallahassee locals and some who had traveled from outside the county.

Jorgensen supporters and campaign volunteers gathered on Landis Green, a field on FSU campus overlooked by Strozier Library, to hear her speak about topics ranging from healthcare to criminal justice reform.

Libertarians believe in liberty as a fundamental ideal and speak to limit overreaching government authority, according to Libertarianism.org.
