On July 24, the five individuals seeking the Green Party presidential nomination presented their ideas to the national meeting of the Green Party being held in St. Louis. Jill Stein mentioned that she is close to qualifying for primary season matching funds. That involves raising $5,000 in small donations from each of 20 states. Stein said she believes this is the earliest a minor party or independent presidential candidate has ever achieved that goal.
In mid-August 1991, Lenora Fulani, who was seeking the nomination of the New Alliance Party, met the matching funds requirement. She went on to receive more than $2,100,000 for her 1992 campaign.
