JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Libertarian presidential nominee Dr. Jo Jorgensen will not be attending a campaign rally in Jackson Saturday morning after she was bitten by a possibly rabid bat.

According to her campaign, the #LetHerSpeak convoy in Hattiesburg will be on time and is scheduled to depart at 2 o’clock central time.
