Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein campaigned in Maine this weekend in advance of municipal elections in the state on Tuesday. WGME-TV Portland reports on its website that Stein spoke at the University of Southern Maine, saying she “supports living wages for workers, eliminating student debt and reigning in big banks.”
Stein “said she’s not counting on winning the White House, but she’s not ruling it out. She said people don’t always vote for the candidate they like the most. Instead, they vote along party lines for someone they might consider the lesser of two evils. ‘All the reasons people were told not to stand up for what we deserve and what we believe, all those scary things, have come to pass, the expanding wars, the offshoring of our jobs, the bailouts for Wall Street,’ Dr. Stein said.”
Maine Green Independent Party mayoral candidate Tom MacMillan is on the ballot in Portland this week.
