On Thursday, Jill Stein unexpectedly declared her candidacy for president, aiming to win the Green Party’s 2024 candidacy.
The Green Party’s 2016 presidential nominee, Dr. Stein, who previously faced off against Trump and Clinton, teased her most recent campaign on social media and unveiled a website in support of it.
Later this month is the planned official debut date.
Democrats were highly incensed by Stein’s 2016 unsuccessful national campaign, claiming she helped Trump win by depriving Clinton of votes in crucial swing states like Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.
Allies of Hillary Clinton claimed she was a spoiler during the 2016 election.
According to early polls from this cycle, the three states will once more be crucial battlegrounds in 2024.
In all three states, according to recent polls, President Biden and President Trump are separated by only a small margin in the polls, raising the possibility of a situation similar to 2016 in November.
Following Cornel West, another third-party candidate, who changed his registration from the Green Party to run as an independent, Stein is once again running under the party’s banner.
Her early support of the progressive platform, which includes the Green New Deal—the comprehensive environmental reform program that is embraced by climate activists—has been encouraged.
