Green leaders also congratulated Illinois Greens <http://www.ilgp.org> for meeting the early filing deadline on November 6 for placing presidential, congressional, and other candidates on the ballot for the state’s February 5 primary. In 2006, the Green Party won its ballot line in Illinois, overcoming difficult ballot access rules and obstruction efforts by Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who used $800,000 in taxpayers’ money trying to block Greens from the ballot. Green gubernatorial candidate Rich Whitney drew over 10% in 2006, more than twice Illinois’ 5% requirement to maintain ballot access.
