MA Greens launch “Clean Money Tidal Wave for Jill Stein”

The Massachusetts Green-Rainbow Party’s Jill Stein for Governor campaign is racing to raise $125,000 by Friday 9/24 in order to qualify for 1-1 public matching funds. Jill Stein supporters have created a viral facebook event called “Clean Money Tidal Wave for Jill Stein” and are asking Greens and progressives across the country to donate and invite their friends.

As of Thursday at 12 PM, the Jill Stein campaign has $96,162 in qualifying contributions towards the $125,000 goal. That means Stein needs $28,838 in contributions of $250 or less by 3 PM EST on Friday to qualify for at least $125,000 in matching public funds. Her campaign raised roughly that amount in the preceding week, when a Boston media consortium announced that she would only be allowed in an October debate if she raised $100,000 by October 1st.

Dr. Stein, who in previous Green Party campaigns earned 3.5% for governor in 2002, 21.3% for state representative in 2004, and 18% for secretary of state in 2006, has been widely praised as an effective spokesperson for the Massachusetts Green-Rainbow Party. If she qualifies for matching public funds, it would mark the first time a Green gubernatorial candidates in Massachusetts has done so.

    Well, I do now.
    Libs, support this candidate. Send $ to Stein instead of Paul.
    I still have a good credit card. I’m going to donate.
    & if I can donate, anybody can.

    OK, that is 3 possible PLAS campaigns so far that I have publicly described.
    This one, & The Whitney/Nolan 2.
    Whitney asks his lib competitor to withdraw & endorse him & maybe even campaign together.
    About the same time Nolan asks his Green competitor to withdraw & endorse him & maybe even campaign together.
    Come on people. Let’s get with the program!

    1/2 hour left to raise about $4000.
    Libs, if you have ANY inclination to do whatever you can to get a third party person into a MSM debate, this is the time.

    friends and supporters,

    YOU DID IT! YOU blew past the $100,000 we needed to ensure our place in the media consortium debate. Our voices will be heard! Voters will get to hear real vision and practical proposals for our common wealth and common health – not just the petty bickering of Beacon Hill insiders avoiding real issues.

    AND THAT’S NOT ALL! Today just before the 5 p.m. deadline campaign staffers turned in qualifying contributions of over $129,000 to the state’s Office of Campaign and Political Finance (OCPF) – exceeding the required threshold for state matching funds. We are optimistic that the application will be approved,
