    Congrats to Michael Cavlan on the endorsement from Green Party Presidential candidate in 2000 Ralph Nader.

    Lake puts it well above.

    Cavlan would make a fine congressman, perhaps the Green Party’s first…U.S. congressman..

    Yes, I know. He’s on the ballot as Independent.

    Cavlan elected could move the Green Party and help guide the Nation in positive direction.

    Maybe, just maybe, it would be something if the Minnesota Independence Party comes out and endorse Cavlan! Does anybody who’s ever lived in MN know if that can be done?
