The Green Party of Arkansas yesterday at their State Meeting nominated a slate of 14 candidates for this November’s election, including challengers to all four congressional seats, two state legislative races, and seven local elections.
They also unanimously endorsed Dr. Jill Stein for President, which gives Stein 10 Presidential Delegates. Arkansas has the 8th largest number of Presidential Delegates due to their strong campaign history over the last four years. In 2008, Rebekah Kennedy (pictured) running for U.S. Senate in a head to head race against conservative Democrat Mark Pryor in Arkansas, took in 206,504 votes for 20.54% of the vote.
