The Independent Green Party, which exists only in Virginia and which is not associated with the Green Party, has already begun circulating a petition in Virginia for President. It lists Michael Bloomberg for President and Larry Ellison for Vice-President. In case those individuals choose not to run, Virginia law lets the Independent Green Party, or any petitioning group, substitute different names later. Thanks to Carey Campbell for this news.
