ATLANTA - Chase Oliver will spend Friday through Sunday in Boise, Idaho, spreading his message of peace, love, and liberty with both Libertarians and non-Libertarians.
“I’ll be kicking off my tour in the West by visiting Idaho,” says Oliver, 38, Rolling Stone’s “Most Influential Libertarian” and Libertarian presidential hopeful.
“Activists there are working hard on issues like cannabis freedom and ranked-choice voting. I look forward to spending time on the ground helping these activists spread their message, and grow the liberty movement in the Gem State,” he adds.
Oliver also will attend events kicking off Hispanic Heritage Month and a demonstration demanding rights for Iranian women, using his run for president to shine the spotlight on political and social activists who are doing the heavy lifting in their communities.

Highlights of the campaign so far:

Oliver spoke at two panel discussions at FreedomFest in Memphis.
As Georgia’s first openly gay Senate candidate, he spent June marching and meeting with many people at Pride events in Chicago, Atlanta, and Kansas City.
Between those appearances, he joined the fight to stop the divisive and unpopular Cop City project in his hometown of Atlanta.
Oliver’s national attention grew following his debate with incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock and an empty podium set aside for opponent Herschel Walker. Oliver 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.
