Green candidate Flowers uninvited from Maryland Senate debate

flowersMaryland Green Party U.S. Senate candidate Margaret Flowers says she has been uninvited from a January debate sponsored by Progressive Neighbors.

Flowers says she was told her invitation was revoked because Rep. Chris Van Hollen, who is seeking the Democratic nomination, objected. Flowers said, “The reality is that because I don’t take corporate dollars, I don’t have the millions that the Democratic candidates have and I need to reach voters early to make them aware that they have a real choice. Just as I will fight for issues in the Senate, I will fight to be heard.”


  1. why not start a petition to get her reinvited and include it with the article? or maybe a meme i can share on Facebook about the injustice of it all?

  2. I have been trying to use my contributions to Green Party Watch to share straightforward information so activists can use it as they will. However, there is a link to the organization in the body of the story above. I think contacting them directly via email would be more successful than the creation of yet another online petition.

  3. Thanks for this. I emailed them. Watch me get no answer, or else some form reply which gives no logical reason why Dr. Flowers got the boot.
