A statement from the website reads:

p jill 2016 logoAmericans deserve real solutions for the critical economic, social and environmental problems we face. But the broken political system is only making things worse.

It’s time to declare our independence from the failed bipartisan establishment, and build a people’s movement for real democracy and real solutions. Together we can do this —it’s in our hands.

Announcements on Dr. Stein’s facebook and twitter pages have already reached hundreds of thousands of people as of 5pm Eastern on the day of the announcement.

News that Dr. Stein was exploring a 2016 run broke this morning with an ABC/Yahoo News exclusive interview titled “Meet the woman trying to turn the White House Green”.

The story has already been picked up by major corporate media outlets including Bloomberg and the Boston Globe.

  1. I’m so excited I’m in tears!!!! If voting works and all of the people who hate GMOs and racism and injustice in this screwed up country of ours will get out and vote we could change this country for the better!!! #nogmo #stopthemadness

  2. Jill, Thank you for giving me an option to the GOP/Dem parties that created this mess. There are millions of us out here that have been waiting for you.

  3. With all due respect, the country is in such a mess that we can’t afford not to actually elect a good candidate in 2016. If Jill runs I’m sure we’ll see the same Green result we’ve seen in past elections.

    I’d like to see the Greens nominate Bernie Sanders. Some Greens have said we can’t do that because he’s an independent. But look at his stands on virtually everything; they agree with ours.

    Sanders can’t get elected unless the Dems nominate him too, and P&F as well. Let’s not get wrapped around Greenego.

    If we don’t try something different in 2016 we’ll get the same result we have in the past, maybe Clinton a little less bad than the Republican.
