By Glenn A. Kirk,, June 26th, 2016:

The 2016 campaign of presumptive presidential candidate, Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party, is catching on fire. Jill, as she is known warmly by supporters, is climbing fast in polls and grabbing the attention of millions of potential voters. As of today, June 22, her campaign stands at a healthy 7 percent in national polls.

For those still unfamiliar with her, Jill is an American physician, activist and politician. In 2012, she was the nominee of the Green Party for president of the United States. That run for the presidency earned her a place in history, with 469,501 votes, more than any other female general election candidate in the history of American presidential politics.

Jill is no novice to politics. She was twice a candidate for governor of Massachusetts, in 2002 and 2010. She ran dynamic and effective campaigns for the Massachusetts House of Representatives in 2004, Secretary of the Commonwealth in ’06, and was elected and served as Town of Lexington representative in ’05 and ’08.
