Green Party hopes to maintain ballot access in Ohio

The Ohio Green Party’s candidate for governor needs to capture at least 3 percent of the vote in the upcoming midterm election if the party hopes to retain state ballot access for the next four years.

That’s partly why Dr. Jill Stein, the Green Party’s presidential candidate in 2012 and 2016, is making stops across Ohio this week to campaign for Constance Gadell-Newton, 38, the Columbus attorney running for governor on the Green Party ticket.

Dr. Stein, 68, a Massachusetts physician, and Ms. Gadell-Newton rallied 50 or so party supporters at the Frederick Douglass Community Center Wednesday, urging them to embrace an alternative to the two-party system and not buy into the belief that third parties disrupt close races.

“To listen to the conventional wisdom out there you’d think that bad politics ... these naughty little boys and girls who don’t comply with the two major parties should be shamed into disappearing, because all manner of bad things are being blamed on those third parties,” said Dr. Stein, who will appear Thursday in Sylvania to protest the Nexus pipeline.

Getting 3% of the voters will require some Russian intervention.
