2012 Presidential Campaign Update

Although the corporate presidential primaries have wrapped up, the Green Party still has a contested primary, and CA Green Party members' votes this June could determine our presidential ticket.

 

Several leading contenders have made the news recently.  Jill Stein was recently interviewed by Grist.org, where she discusses the last time she beat Mitt Romney in a debate.  Roseanne Barr was recently endorsed by 2008 Green Party presidential nominee Cynthia McKinney and by the Green Party's Black Caucus.

 

We are organizing a presidential candidate forum during the upcoming state Green Party plenary in SF.  It will tentatively be held on the evening of May 12, and Jill Stein, Roseanne Barr and Kent Mesplay are all confirmed to attend.
