Louisiana Greens plan to run first-ever House candidate in First District

LouisianaGreen Party of Louisiana activist Stewart Eastman tells The New Orleans Times-Picayune, “The New Year’s resolution of the Green Party of St. Tammany is to recruit and run a candidate for Congress this year for the first time.”

Eastman said, “Last year our Green candidate got about four percent of the vote in St. Tammany in the state elections, which is more than the two percent often used to consider a candidate serious. We’ll try to do even better in 2016 with the environment.”

St. Tammany is located in Louisiana’s First Congressional District, currently represented by Republican House Majority Whip Steve Scalise.
