Wisconsin Green Party set for presidential preference primary

Wisconsin Green Party set for presidential preference primary Green Presidential candidates Johnson, McKinney, Mesplay, and Swift to be on Wisconsin Green Party ballot, Nader not yet a declared candidate

Wisconsin will be sending 24 of the 836 Delegates that will determine the Green Party’s nominee for President of the United States. The Green Party (US) Nominating Convention is July 10-13, 2008 in Chicago, IL. The Wisconsin Green Party will have the seventh largest state delegation in Chicago.

The Wisconsin Green Party’s Primary will be conducted by mail during the month of March. Ballots will be sent to all current members containing the names of all declared candidates for the Green Party nomination for President, along with options for “Uncommitted” and “Write-in”. At this point the candidates appearing on the ballot are: Jesse Johnson (WV), Cynthia McKinney (CA), Kent Mesplay (CA), & Kat Swift (TX).

Although Ralph Nader has formed a Presidential Exploratory Committee, and there is an active Draft Nader Committee, Mr. Nader has not declared in time to be named as a candidate on the Wisconsin ballot. Should he declare that he is seeking the nomination of the Green Party of the United States before Wisconsin Greens send in their ballots, they are encouraged to write in his name and consider him as one of the 5 candidates.

“We’ve got some outstanding candidates this year,” said Wisonsin Green Party Co-Chair Cindy Stimmler. “Mesplay and McKinney have already visited our state, and we warmly welcome all of the candidates.”
