ATLANTA - Chase Oliver will be the only Libertarian presidential candidate to join Republican, Democrat, and Independent counterparts at New Hampshire forums where he will speak and interact with voters.

"Once again I am stepping into the arena to put Libertarian principles on stage with the two-party system. I am proud to put a platform rooted in liberty for all people alongside the left and right authoritarian platforms of the Democrats and Republicans." says Oliver, 38, Rolling Stone’s “Most Influential Libertarian” and Libertarian presidential hopeful. “As the Libertarian nominee, I will challenge old ways of thinking at every opportunity.”

New Hampshire’s first primary has long been the crucible for presidential candidates. Vivek Ramaswamy, Asa Hutchison, and Marianne Williamson are among the candidates who have expressed plans to attend The Government Information Forums over the next two weeks.

The Government Information Forum anticipates participation from Republicans, Ron DeSantis, Chris Christie, Nikki Haley, and potentially former President Donald Trump or one of his surrogates, especially since the second GOP Presidential debate will be held at 9 p.m. on Jan. 18 at Saint Anselm College in Manchester.

Oliver is included because he has the biggest grassroots support and the most engaged candidacy among the Libertarian presidential candidates. 

This is his third time sharing the stage with Old Party candidates, first in a debate in his prominent run for U.S. Senate in 2022 and then for his appearance as a presidential candidate at the Iowa Soapbox last summer.

Oliver has visited 44 states and is on target to hit all 50 before the Libertarian Party National Convention on Memorial Day weekend in Washington, D.C.

“Voters know they deserve more than two choices on their ballot. The two-party system doesn't respond to the will or the needs of voters anymore, so I am entering this race to provide an honest alternative voters can feel good about voting for, and under the age of retirement to boot,” says Chase Oliver.

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;

  • Broke barriers for the Libertarian Party when he became the first presidential candidate outside of the Old Parties invited to speak at the Iowa Political Soapbox at the Iowa State Fair.

  • 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.

Oliver’s national attention grew after he debated 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.
