Today Jill Stein’s campaign, aimed at securing the Green Party’s nomination for president, sent out a fundraising email with the pitch of “Double Your Green.” That is, if Stein raises $5,000 in donations of $250 or less from 20 or more states, the federal government will then match donations of that amount dollar-for-dollar. Interestingly, the email contained a map of their progress toward that goal:
See below for a map showing how far along your state is toward qualifying for matching funds:
The sooner we qualify, the better. That’s when we start doubling our green for the Green Party, which means that Dr. Stein can invest twice as much on getting the Greens on the ballot, building our state and local parties, and putting our Green New Deal agenda in the public eye.
As of Monday, February 20th, two states have qualified (CA, MA), one state is close (NY) and four states are halfway there (IL, MD, VA, WI).
Our goal is to qualify in our first 10 states by March 15th.
States that have qualified: California, Massachusetts
3/4 of the way there: New York
Halfway there: Illinois, Maryland, Virginia, Wisconsin
1/4 of the way there: D.C., Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington
Raised something: Every state.
