- October 28 - Co-chairs of the Green Party
of the Green Party of the United States are
advising members of the news media and the
general public today about a potentially
misleading news story that indicates Green Party
support for Democratic presidential candidate
According to the story, the New Hampshire Green
Party recently announced its endorsement of Mr.
Kucinich. The endorsement decision reportedly
took place at a meeting in a coffee shop that was
attended by six individuals.
Green Party officials wish to clarify that the
half-dozen individuals responsible for the news
release in question are not affiliated with the
Green Party of the United States. Furthermore,
New Hampshire is one of five states which still
do not have a functioning state Green Party.
Reporters are advised to check stories about
Green Party policies, campaigns, events, etc.
with the national party or with
affiliated state Green Parties.
The Green Party of the United States, recognized
by the FEC as the party's national committee,
includes 43 accredited state Green Parties, and
will hold the party's national convention in
Milwaukee in June, 2004. The decision about
whom, how, and whether to run in the 2004
national election will be made democratically by
all the accredited state Green Parties at the
Milwaukee convention. The Green Party of the
United States held the 2000 national convention
in Denver at which Ralph Nader was nominated.
