Green Party presidential candidate Bill Kreml said that Jill Stein will “probably” be the Green nominee.

Writing on Facebook, Kreml said, “In November, there will be other choices beyond the usual Republican/Democrat duopoly. There will be a Green candidate, probably Jill Stein, who opposes our wars with their massive killing of civilians, the gathering inequality, the non-prosecution of rich wrong doers…and the selling out of our country to foreign country lobbies, whose constituencies not only have divided loyalties, but often dual citizenship. The Green Party awaits you in the fall.”
