JILL STEIN WINS GREEN PARTY MINNESOTA CAUCUS
With 100% of Minnesota Green Party Caucuses reporting, Dr. Jill Stein has won our Presidential Straw Poll with 84% of the vote.
While these votes do not determine Minnesota's delegates to the Green Party U.S. nominating convention, they are a great indication of member support for our recognized candidates. The official Green Party Minnesota delegate vote will take place in June at the Statewide Membership Meeting in St. Cloud (exact date and location to be determined).
"We are very excited to see the enthusiastic response for our candidates seeking the Green endorsement for President. As we are seeing with the two major parties, the public is clearly desperate for candidates they view as "outside" the political establishment. We share in the frustrations everyday Minnesotan's have with corporately owned politics and we are here for them as a principled alternative to that." -Brandon Long, Green Party of Minnesota Spokesperson
