Chase Russell Oliver (born August 16, 1985) is an American political activist, sales account executive, and HR representative.[1] Oliver was the Libertarian nominee for the 2022 United States Senate election in Georgia and the 2020 Georgia's 5th congressional district special election. He is the Libertarian Party’s candidate in the 2024 United States presidential election.[2]

In the 2022 Georgia special United States Senate election, Oliver received over 2% of the popular vote, possibly acting as a spoiler candidate and forcing the Georgia senate race into a run-off.[3][4][5][6]

Oliver is openly gay and resides in the suburbs of Atlanta.[7]
