Spike Cohen is the Libertarian Party’s 2020 Vice Presidential nominee who is running with Jo Jorgensen. 

Cohen got his start when he launched a web design company in 1999. However, he stepped away from it and retired in 2017 so that he could put his energy into speaking about his libertarian ideas. He also hosts two podcasts called My Fellow Americans and Muddied Waters of Freedom, and co-owns Muddied Waters Media.

Why was he chosen as Jorgensen’s running mate? 

Cohen was picked to be Jorgensen’s running mate in early 2020 due to his skills of being able to connect with the public and share his ideas openly. Cohen even referred to himself and Jorgensen as being a “fusion ticket,” saying, “We unite the factions of the Libertarian Party and we unite the ideas of how to reach various voters and voting groups.”

What is Cohen’s political background? 

Before Jorgensen, Cohen ran with a candidate named Vermin Supreme, who famously wears a boot as a hat and tries to spread awareness about the zombie apocalypse. Supreme and Cohen aimed to get voters interested by using satire and humor. Supreme also promised people that if they fought for time travel research, he would give them a free pony in return. However, the jokes weren’t being taken seriously, so ultimately, Cohen was chosen as the Vice President nominee. 

Cohen seems like he can be a mix between funny and serious when it’s appropriate. He even claimed that “Jo Jorgensen and I are running to change it so that the political discourse in this country isn’t a cynical joke, and that the people are being served and represented by their government.”

Cohen uses Instagram to connect with voters.

Jeremy “Spike” Cohen uses his Instagram account to connect with voters. He also loves to post pictures of himself traveling for the campaign, meeting citizens, and most importantly, meeting dogs!
