NPR Illinois interviewed Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein in advance of the state’s March 15 primaries. A 10-minute segment was broadcast on 89.3 FM Pittsfield and 91.9 FM Springfield, with an additional 14 minutes broadcast online.
The site also carries the audio of a half-hour speech Stein made on “Working for Our Political Environment and Personal Health” at the University of Illinois Springfield. NPR Illinois says Stein “spoke to a packed theater” at the school last Thursday.
The Illinois Green Party has already held its presidential preference vote, with Stein receiving 87% of the votes cast in the five-candidate field and winning 20 of the state’s 23 delegates to the August Green Party nominating convention.
