ATLANTA - Chase Oliver marks his August 16 birthday by looking forward to what he can do next instead of reminiscing about a political career that overstayed its welcome.
“Today I turn 38. I’m exactly half the age of Donald Trump and less than half of Joe Biden’s age,” says Oliver, Rolling Stone’s “Most Influential Libertarian” and Libertarian presidential hopeful.
“It’s time that we look to Millennials to lead us into the 21st century, not 20th century politicians.”
Oliver leaves for Iowa Thursday, where he becomes the first non-Republican or non-Democrat presidential candidate to speak at Iowa’s Soapbox. He qualified for the honor after meeting voters while campaigning at the Harrison County Fair on July 22.
