Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein talks with CNN.com about her campaign and her differences with Democratic presidential contender Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Stein said, “I think we share very similar values and visions. I just happen to be working in a party that supports those values and those visions. … I have long since thrown in the towel on the Democratic and Republican parties because they are really a front group for the one percent, for predatory banks, fossil fuel giants and war profiteers.”
CNN writes that Stein “had many positive words for the Sanders campaign but said he was constrained by a political party with a history of co-opting progressive campaigns.” She said, “The party allows progressive faces to sort of be their figurehead for a little while, but while it does that, while it sort of fakes left, the party continues to march toward the right.”
CNN notes, “The Sanders campaign did not respond to multiple requests for comment on this article.”
