Jill Is Coming To Texas
Jill Is Coming To Texas For those of you in Texas who don't see the Democratic Party (or its probable candidate for 2016, Hillary Clinton) as progressive enough for your taste, there is an option for you. Dr. Jill Stein has declared her intention to seek the Green Party nomination for president in 2016.
Dr. Stein is a proud progressive. She was the nominee in 2012, and has worked hard for progressive causes since that election (including getting arrested trying to stop the seizing of private property for the Keystone XL pipeline here in Texas).
Now you have a chance to hear (and possibly even meet) Dr. Stein, because the Green Party of Texas has announced she will be visiting two Texas cities this month. Here is their press release:
