Jill Stein Earns Matching Funds in New York State

Today, Green Party candidate Jill Stein announced that she has has met the threshold in New York State to receive matching funds for her presidential campaign. She has achieved Green Party ballot status in 20 states, and is running petition drives in the others. She has won all of the Green Party primary elections so far, and has 25% of the delegates she will need to become the Green Party’s official presidential nominee at the Green national convention in July.

Jill Stein is gaining momentum. If you want to vote for something better than the lesser of two evils, give her your support. You won’t get what you want if you don’t pitch in.

    Thus far I find Rocky Anderson preferable to any of the other deserving candidates. However, Stein seems to be making more progress in getting onto ballots. I would favor Anderson throwing support to Stein if he can’t equal her success in gaining ballot access. If there was a convention to choose between the two, or between them and several others (Richardson, Alexander, Johnson, etc.), that would result in a powerful candidacy. But even if the candidates and parties could unite in this perilous moment of our polical history, the rigged system probably wouldn’t allow the winner (and his/her running mate) ballot access equal to or exceeding that of the Green party.

    None of this inclines me in the least to vote for any of the Republicans, or Obama.

      A long list of third parties to choose between with ballot access in at least one state. It’s extremely unlikely all third parties will band together to become one big tent anti-D/R movement even for just one race in just one election.

      There was the idea back in 2008, but the candidates all said such a strategy was unfeasible. Check C-SPAN 2008 Presidential Third Party debates.

      I found it for you, it’s near the end contemplating a fusion of the three!

      While 11 parties are going to be on the ballot in at least one state. Only four parties (if you count Americans Elect) will get ballot access in enough states to get 270+ electoral votes in theory if they won all the states they are on the ballot in.

    i agree Charles, and likewise will not vote for Obama or any of the other corporate clowns. If Jill or Rocky show up on the PA ballot, i’ll vote for them (or write one of them in – or a ticket of both of them) over any of the conventional candidates. i’ve no illusions that they have any chance of taking the presidency.

    According to news I have, Gary Johnson is qualifying for matching funds at a faster rate than Jill Stein!

    It’s in the form of a march madness chart. He’s fully qualified in 15 states as of yet. Which is triple what Jill Stein has right now!
