Jill Stein, a physician from Massachusetts, is seeking the nomination of the Green Party of the United States for President in 2016. In 2012, Stein was the Green Party's nominee and received 469,501 votes for President of the United States in the 2012 general election.[2]

She officially declared she was running for president for a second time during an appearance on Democracy Now! on June 22, 2015.[3]

Background

On February 6, 2015, Stein announced the formation of an exploratory committee in preparation for a potential campaign for the Green Party's presidential nomination in the 2016.[4] In June 2015, during an interview on The Alan Colmes Show, Stein indicated that she would announce her intention to run for President "certainly before the summer is up, probably a lot sooner than that".[5]

On June 6, 2015 Stein was a speaker at the kickoff event for Socialist Alternative member and Seattle City Councilor Kshama Sawant.[6] Sawant and Socialist Alternative were supporters of Stein's 2012 presidential bid.

In an e-mail to supporters on June 10, 2015, Stein wrote "I’m preparing to make a big announcement next week." She also challenged her supporters to raise $10,000 in that time period. Two days later on June 12, Stein's campaign sent another e-mail indicating that she had surpassed that goal and raised her fundraising goal to $30,000. Her campaign also noted that she will seek to qualify for matching funds from the federal government by raising at least $5,000 from residents of 20 states before receiving the nomination in 2016. The e-mail indicated that she had already raised more than the requisite amount from residents of California and that Washington State, New York, and others were very close behind.[7] In September, Stein's campaign said they had met the $5,000 mark in five states (California, Florida, Massachusetts, New York, and Washington) and had received at least half of that amount in eight others.[8]
