Green Party Makes Pitch To Sanders Backers: Join Us

The Hill reports:

The Green Party, a political party that prioritizes environmental issues, posted a statement Wednesday attempting to court supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who dropped out of the Democratic presidential race earlier in the day.

“The Green Party will continue to build and expand on issues that Sanders raised. Join us,” the statement read.

Jill Stein, the Green Party’s 2016 presidential candidate who earned just 1.7 percent of the popular vote, thanked Sanders for “making media cover Green Party agenda” of “Medicare for All” and the Green New Deal.
