Presidential candidate Jill Stein: 5 days to make Green Party history
June 25, 2012 in Presidential Campaign
Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein is within reach of becoming the first Green Party presidential candidate ever to qualify for federal matching funds. However, June 30th is the deadline to apply for matching funds, meaning that Stein’s campaign needs to reach the threshold of $5,000 in 9 more states within the next 5 days. If Stein qualifies, every donation up to $250 will be matched by federal funds, giving a huge boost to her campaign’s capacity to win ballot lines and reach voters.
Here is the latest update from Jill Stein’s campaign on the matching funds drive:
Three new states are now 3/4 of the way to securing federal matching funds. Congratulations to Michigan, Ohio, and Virginia; you are almost there! These three states join Oregon and New Mexico near the finish line, and other states are making major progress too! Click here to see how our 15 priority states are doing.
With just over five days left to Double Your Green, campaign manager Ben Manski has recorded a short video explaining the importance of securing matching funds to the overall Stein strategy. See the video here: http://youtu.be/UFhqi2Ottnk
Please make sure you donate in this final week of our matching funds campaign. And please spread the word to people in key states — ask them to donate too!
