DC’s ‘Second Party’ will send 16 delegates to the Green National Convention in Chicago, July 10-13

Green presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney will visit DC on Tuesday, Feb. 19 and speak at Howard University; details to be announced

DC Statehood Green Party leaders look forward to a good turnout of registered party members in the February 12, 2008 primary election in the District of Columbia.

“Since the DC Statehood Green Party has major party status in the District of Columbia,
Statehood Green voters will participate in the primary just as Democratic and Republican voters do,” said LaVerne Butler, Ward 5 representative on the Statehood Green Party’s steering committee.

on the DC ballot in the February 12 primary:

    Howie Hawkins (Ralph Nader placeholder), 2006 New York Green candidate for the US: Mr. Hawkins has consented to serve as a ‘placeholder’ candidate on the DC ballot for Ralph Nader until Mr. Nader announces his intentions for the 2008 election.

    The DC Statehood Green Party has qualified to send 16 delegates to the Green Party’s 2008 Green National Nominating Convention in Chicago, July 10-13, at which 836 Green delegates will choose the party’s presidential and vice presidential nominees.

    The DC primary is one of five state primaries in which Greens are participating in 2008. Results from the four states where Green Parties participated in the February 5 Super Tuesday primaries showed a landslide for Ralph Nader in California (61%), a lead among candidates for Cynthia McKinney in Arkansas and Illinois, and close but unconfirmed numbers for Ms. McKinney and Mr. Nader in Massachusetts.

    Some Green Parties are choosing presidential candidates by caucus voting and by election of national convention delegates at state party conventions.

    The Green Party has vowed to achieve 51 ballot lines in 2008 in all the states and the District of Columbia, and has committed party resources for this purpose. Greens currently have ballot access in 21 states, including Washington, DC

    On Tuesday, February 19, presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney will visit Washington, DC, for an evening appearance at Howard University, a press conference, and other area appearances. Details of Ms. McKinney’s visit will be announced soon.

    On Saturday morning, February 2, the DC Statehood Green Party and Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia Green Parties hosted a Green presidential candidates’ forum at Busboys & Poets in Washington, DC. Candidates Jesse Johnson, Kent Mesplay, and Kat Swift participated. Ms. McKinney, who had a prior engagement in New York, was represented by hip-hop artist Head-Roc. Ralph Nader spoke after the forum, because he has not formally announced his candidacy yet.

    In recent elections, DC Statehood Green candidates have collectively won more votes than Republican candidates, even in 2006 when the two parties ran the same number
    of candidates for partisan office. The Statehood Green Party is now ‘DC’s Second Party’ in terms of electoral clout.

    DC Statehood Green leaders look forward to a possible milestone in 2008: the Green presidential candidate placing second on Election Day, ahead of the Republican candidate.
