And this is posted at Lynne William’s campaign website:

I am very pleased to have received the endorsement of the D.C. based Women’s Campaign Forum, for my State Senate race. The WCF is the oldest, national non-partisan political committee of its kind, and endorses only women who support reproductive health choices for all.

It provides technical assistance, financial support and great contacts. Hopefully I will be able to get a contribution to help pay off my gubernatorial debt and/or towards my seed money fundraising. However, the most exciting aspect of this endorsement is that fact that, to my knowledge, the WCF has never endorsed a Green Party candidate. In my interview with the WCF leadership, I emphasized how important it was that we establish a relationship between WCF and the fabulous woman who are running – and who will run in the future – as Green Party candidates. I truly believe that this is the start of just such a relationship.

    PLAS reply to Cobb: Greens AND Libertarians vote for one or the other on each bllot & take away a LOT of votes from BOTH the dems & reps.

  2. Green Party Conservative

    The Green Party candidate for President in Germany today doing very well..

    Voting has just completed the 3rd round…

    There Is A Winner Here — Joachim Gauck

    And then, of course, there is a question that would have been unthinkable only a few hours ago: What would happen if Gauck were to win?

    Merkel’s power would melt away, perhaps in a matter of only hours or days, certainly within weeks. At that point, all the members of Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union, its Bavarian sister party the Christian Social Union, and the Free Democrats who didn’t want to be dragged into the abyss would stage a political rebellion. That would include members of parliament who fear losing their seats as well as state governors who would face tough elections.

    If that happened, it could spell the end of Merkel’s career as chancellor.

    No matter how this day ends: Merkel is the main loser of the German presidential election. And even if Gauck loses to Wulff in the end, he will still emerge as the winner.

    He showed that politics is more than just a game of tactics and strategy. He proved that you can also get somewhere in politics through charisma and credibility. He is a role model for a new kind of politics.

  3. Green Party Conservative

    Spiegel magazine also reporting record high popularity of the Green Party.

    48% of those polled “seriously consider voting for the Green Party..”

    The two larger parties both received only 55% ..by comparison…
