On Saturday, May 23rd, 2020, the Libertarian Party nominated Dr. Jo Jorgensen for president at a virtual convention with about 1,000 delegates from 50 states and D.C.
Jorgensen is the Libertarian Party's first female presidential candidate in its history of elections dating back to 1972. She is considered more moderate/pragmatic than others in the party -- a feature that could theoretically dampen her support among some purists, but could also bring in more mainstream voters who dislike both Donald Trump and Joe Biden. For example, Jorgensen does not argue that we need to totally eliminate government, like an anarchist would, but that, "We have got to cut the size and scope of the government."
