As far as I am aware, the other candidates are still running. Numerous candidates are running for seats in the House of Representatives. The link to the page with their info is here.
Finally, Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate Jill Stein has almost raised enough money to qualify for matching funds. You can donate by going here:
Dave Schwab reports that her campaign, at last posting, is $8,655 shy of the $125,000 needed, and phred updated that amount raised to $117,690 here. This means that less than seven thousand dollars is still needed by 4:30PM today to meet the deadline. Considering the short period of time that Ms. Stein has been able to raise money, she might be able to do it, but she needs your help.
So many progressives say that they will support progressive candidates if viable ones appear. Well, Jill Stein looks like exactly that kind of candidate. Her positions on the issues are a left-winger’s dream, and she has proven that she can raise a lot of money in a very short amount of time. Help put her over the top to qualify for matching funds in the Massachusetts gubernatorial election. This is the moment of truth. Let’s make it a reality as well.
