Party needs 5,000 signatures to place Stein on the Kansas ballot
Surrounded by a tight circle of supporters Saturday, Jill Stein, presumptive presidential nominee for the Green Party, delivered a message during an intimate Topeka campaign stop that this is the year for a third-party candidate.
Stein has aggressively courted disgruntled supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-Vt., since his campaign began to wind down. Her message, shared at the Downtown Ramada Hotel and Convention Center, was clear: Though likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is the “lesser of two evils” compared to Republican Donald Trump, Clinton is still the wrong candidate for both liberals and moderates.
“It’s time to forget the lesser evil and stand up for the good of the people,” Stein said.
