OLIVER RETURNS TO IOWA FOR CAUCUSES

ATLANTA - Chase Oliver will come to Iowa for the third time, this time joining voters on Monday as they throw their support behind presidential candidates at the Iowa Caucuses.


Chase Oliver, 38, Speaking at the Iowa Soapbox hosted by the Des Moines Register

“While this year may be the coldest Caucus on record, I’m ready to get back to Iowa and heat up the competition in 2024,” says Oliver, 38, Rolling Stone’s “Most Influential Libertarian” and Libertarian presidential hopeful. “Last year, I was the first candidate ever outside of the old parties to speak at the Iowa State Fair Soapbox. I’m ready to keep making history in the Hawkeye State on Caucus Day and throughout 2024.”

This year’s event is the first presidential caucus since the Libertarian Party became a major party in Iowa after the 2022 election. Oliver qualified for a speaking slot at the Iowa Soap Box at last year’s Iowa State Fair after meeting the threshold of campaign activities in the state.


Caucus participants must be residents of Iowa and registered to vote as a Libertarian. Potential participants can fill out Voter Registration forms the same day and join the Libertarian caucuses. Voters must attend the caucus in person.


Caucuses are scheduled on Monday night in precincts all over Iowa, where voters also begin the process of selecting delegates to national conventions. Caucus support for presidential candidates is nonbinding - voters may choose the same candidate or someone else entirely in primary and general elections.

In 2023, Chase Oliver:

  • Raised the most funds from donors among all Libertarian candidates for president;

  • Has the largest network of donors and volunteers from across the nation;

  • Traveled more miles and to more states - 44, with many repeat visits - than any of his competitors;

  • Helped fund-raise thousands of dollars and knocked on hundreds of doors to help local candidates;

  • Gained media attention for activism, including opposing Cop City in his hometown of Atlanta and protests to support charities providing poverty relief in Columbia, S.C.


Chase Oliver starts 2024 as the only Libertarian candidate invited to debate Republican, Democrat, and independent candidates at the Government Information Forum as part of the lead-up to the nation’s first primary in New Hampshire.


Oliver’s national attention grew after his debate with incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock and an empty podium set aside for opponent Herschel Walker. Oliver - Georgia’s first openly gay candidate for Senate - garnered over 80,000 votes and forced a runoff between the Republican and Democratic candidates. 


Broadcast coverage includes PBS, CNN, Fox Business, and CSPAN. Print coverage includes The New York Times, The Washington Post, Bloomberg, and Rolling Stone, which labels him the “Most Influential Libertarian.” 


Oliver is available for media interviews, including for university journalism and communications students.
