On July 14, 2012, Dr. Jill Stein, candidate for President for the Green Party received its nomination and will proceed to the general election with running mate Cheri Honkala.
Stein won 193.5 delegates, compared with 72 for comedian Roseanne Barr, who did not attend.
Stein hopes the party will qualify for the ballot in at least 40 states; the total now stands at 21.
Stein has been running for office in Massachusetts for the past decade. In the 2002 race against Romney, she won only 3 percent of the vote. She made unsuccessful runs for secretary of state in 2006 and governor again in 2010.
