(WORT)–Although the Democratic and Republican presidential primaries are over in Wisconsin, Madison plays host to another presidential hopeful this weekend.
Jill Stein is a physician and an environmental-health advocate. She earned over 469,000 votes in 2012 as the Green Party’s candidate for President of the United States. Stein is running for president again this year, and she’ll be in Madison April 15th and 16th for a meet-and-greet with supporters and for the Wisconsin Green Party Presidential Nominating Convention.
She spoke with WORT’s Darien Lamen about the connection between economic and environmental justice, about nuclear power, and about the need for progressive voters to break what she calls an “abusive relationship” with the Democratic party.
