  1. These are excellent numbers for all the Green Party candidates.

    Green Party candidate Rebekah Kennedy was expecially impressive in her last statwide campaign for U.S. Senate. The Green Party’s Kennedy received a record number of votes in Arkansas.

    It is also positive that party identification makes Green Party candidates more popular. And Rebekah Kennedy polls even higher when identified as a Green Party candidate.

    Meanwhile, a judge in Arizona has ruled in favor of keeping Green Party candidates on the ballot.

  2. Bobby Tullis is not a Green. He tried to buy the Democratic nomination from Gus Wingfield and a memo proved it. He even admits to it. It’s a shame the Green Party had no other person file and had to let him on their ticket.
