Doctor Poised for Green Party Nod for President

By  | 

ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- July 14, 2012

A Massachusetts doctor who ran against Mitt Romney for governor a decade ago is poised to challenge him again -- this time for president as the Green Party's candidate.

Jill Stein is scheduled to speak Saturday in Baltimore at the Green Party's convention, where she is expected to win the nomination.

Stein ran against comedian Roseanne Barr, who also is scheduled to speak.

Stein says she's confident more people have become unhappy with the two mainstream political parties. She cites the Occupy Wall Street movement as an example. Stein also notes this is the first time the Green Party's presidential candidate has qualified for federal matching funds, a sign she says indicates more people are interested in the party now.
