In one of the most exciting Green campaigns of 2014, Howie Hawkins, the New York Green Party’s candidate for governor, will take part in a televised (and livestreamed) debate with his opponents on Wednesday, October 22nd at 8pm Eastern time. Despite having a tiny fraction of the money and media attention of his opponents, Hawkins has surged to 9% in statewide polls and has passed the Republican candidate in some areas. In fact, his poll numbers are similar to Jesse Ventura’s before a strong showing in debates propelled him to win the 1998 Minnesota gubernatorial election.
Howie takes on Gov 1% in the ONLY televised debate of this campaign season! Wednesday at 8pm. Please spread the word to your friends that there’s a debate happening – Cuomo has been keeping a low profile and we hear the NYC media is barely aware that this is happening.
