Green Party’s Presidential Nominee courts Sanders Supporters, Calls Assange Hero
Green Party, on Saturday, officially nominated Jill Stein as their presidential nominee and human rights activist Ajamu Baraka as her Vice presidential running mate. Jill made it clear that she wants to target the disaffected Bernie Sanders supporters as she thanked the supporters of Bernie Sanders, in her acceptance speech, for not letting the “political revolution” die. Jill Stein also lauded the effort of Wikileaks for disclosing around 20,000 emails of Democratic National Committee, thereby exposing how Hillary Clinton was favoured by the committee over progressive challenger Bernie Sanders. She went on to call Assange a “hero”.
