ATLANTA - Presidential candidate Chase Oliver is visiting Minnesota Libertarians to inspire them to attend the convention coming in April.

“While I will, unfortunately, miss their convention, I would be remiss if I didn’t get back to Minnesota to meet with so many hardworking Libertarians,” says Oliver, 38, winner of the Presidential Straw Poll at the Libertarian Party of Iowa Caucus and who earned a spot in the Free and Equal debate next week.

Oliver will be meeting Libertarians in Burnsville, where Libertarian Cara Schulz is the two-term city council member and is seeking a third term. There will also be two extraordinary special guests, Lev Assev and Mark Pervushin, both in their early 20s, who will share their remarkable journey and sign copies of their book.

Their story is gripping: fleeing Russia amidst the threat of mandatory conscription under Putin's regime, they embarked on a courageous journey to escape violence and totalitarianism. Their book, "The New Exodus: Escaping Putin’s War," vividly recounts their harrowing escape and their quest for freedom. 

“Our upcoming meet and greet in Burnsville is sure to be a great event that with wonderful conversations that can warm a Minnesota winter,” Oliver says. “Join us and hear about a powerful and positive message of liberty that will break through the two-party static.”

The Libertarian Party of Minnesota convention will be April 19-21 in Duluth, where the state delegates will choose those who will attend the national convention on Memorial Day weekend in Washington D.C. Delegates at the national convention will nominate the Libertarian candidate for president.

Since his campaign began in 2023, Chase Oliver:

  • Qualified to join the Free and Equal Debate that includes candidates outside of the Old Parties. Oliver will join five other candidates - including fellow Libertarian Lars Mapstead - on Feb. 29.

  • Won the Presidential Straw Poll with about 43 percent of the vote at Libertarian Party of Iowa’s first Caucus. The Iowa Caucuses kick off the presidential campaign season, and showings here can make or break candidacies.

  • Became the first third-party presidential candidate invited to speak at the Iowa Political Soapbox at the State Fair, a reward for in-person campaigning in the Hawkeye State.

  • Spoke at two panel discussions at FreedomFest in Memphis. 

  • As Georgia’s first openly gay Senate candidate, spent June marching and meeting with many people at Pride events in Chicago, Atlanta, and Kansas City. 

  • Joined the fight to stop the divisive and unpopular Cop City project in his hometown of Atlanta; joined protests against inhumane tactics that city government used against the homeless in Columbia, South Carolina; and has worked alongside activists in his tour across the country.

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 Forbes, 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.
