The Green Party regained ballot status in three states on Election Day 2010 and Green Mayor Gayle McLaughlin was reelected in Richmond, California, among several other victories in that state.

Green election results in Massachusetts, New York, and Texas won ballot access for these states, thanks to the campaigns of Nat Fortune for State Auditor in Massachusetts, Howie Hawkins and Gloria Mattera for governor and lieutenant governor in New York, and Ed Lindsay for Comptroller in Texas.  Green Parties in California, the District of Columbia, and Michigan maintained their ballot status.

Having ballot status in three of the most populous states will make a Green presidential campaign much easier in 2012.

A list of victories, including ballot status wins, follows below.  News from other races:  LeAlan Jones (Illinois) and John Gray (Arkansas) were declared winners by reporters in their state’s debates, with Mr. Jones declared the winner of a debate he was barred from attending.  In a historic first, Arizona Green candidate Jerry Joslyn confronted John McCain on his war spending in a US Senate debate.

  1. It’s nice to see that others like the same things that I do.

    I love florida, my villa that I had while I was in orlando had a stunning
    golf course with funny animals (looked like squirrels but they were a funny colour)

    There were 8 of us when we went and had such a great time.

    The swimming pool was just right, the only thing I wish we has done was to
    hire a car to get around, and we missed out on going to disney :(

    We loved out luxury florida villa and would go back tomorrow if we could!
