Jill Stein Looks Unstoppable Following a Trio of Weekend Victories

The Green Party's Jill Stein

Jill Stein has now gone sixteen for sixteen in the Green Party presidential nominating contests.

In three contests conducted over the weekend, Jill Stein won 10 of 10 delegates in Arkansas, 7 out of 13 in Maine, and 2 of 4 in Rhode Island. Of the 129 delegates allocated thus far, Stein has captured 96.5 of them.

Roseanne Barr’s campaign for the Green Party’s presidential nomination is looking increasingly hopeless. At least a half-dozen additional state conventions are coming up in the next three weeks, but the Barr campaign is rapidly running out of rope. Without a major turn of fortune, the former sitcom star seems headed for certain defeat at the Green Party’s July convention.

If she failed to win the Green nomination, it’s not currently clear if Barr would attempt to continue her campaign as an independent or perhaps seek the nomination of another left-wing party.

Meanwhile, the Stein campaign continues to advance their push towards securing Federal Matching Funds prior to the Green convention.

    Barr has said that she really wants to draw attention to the Green Party, so I’m curious to see what’ll happen if she becomes mathematically unable to win the nomination. She’s really adamant about being behind the cause, I’m hoping she’ll help draw even more attention to the party.
