Green Party seeks more ballot lines after McKinney/Clemente nom in Chicago

Greens, after the nomination of the McKinney-Clemente ticket at the Chicago convention, begin aggressive ballot access effort

Green Party leaders, after the successful national convention last weekend in Chicago, have turned their attention towards placing nominees Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente on the ballot in every state.  Greens are also organizing efforts to demand that Ms. McKinney be allowed to participate in the presidential debates beginning in September. http://www.runcynthiarun.org

“We have 22 state ballot lines, and are aiming to have Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente on as many ballot lines as possible on Election Day,” said Cliff Thornton, co-chair of the Green Party of the United States.  “Greens in states with secure ballot lines are assisting other states with petition circulating, organizing, and fundraising.”

Cynthia McKinney, a former Democrat who served six terms in the US House and has since converted to Green, competed with Jesse Johnson, Kent Mesplay, and Kat Swift for the presidential nomination.  Ms. McKinney won with 324 votes out of 542 cast by delegates after one round of voting in the Chicago Symphony Center, the convention site, on Saturday, July 12 (http://www.gp.org/2008-elections/2008-Presidential-Ballots_1.htm).

Jesse Johnson will continue to participate in the 2008 election — as the Mountain Party’s nominee for Governor of West Virginia (http://www.jesse4wvgov.org).  The Mountain Party is the West Virginia affiliate of the Green Party of the United States.

Green Party leaders noted that unprecedented radio, video, and Internet coverage made it possible for viewers and listeners to follow the unfolding of the Chicago convention and the nomination.
