The veteran liberal political web site Irregular Times just put up a new collection of Jill Stein for President buttons and magnets. This collection includes the locally specific campaign button for Illinois voters supporting Jill Stein.
Why Illinois for Jill Stein? Isn’t Illinois the home base for the Barack Obama re-election campaign?
Besides that, the Jill Stein for President campaign also has a strong presence in Illinois in the form of Ben Manski, a well-known political organizer in Illinois and Wisconsin. Manski has been working to strengthen the Illinois Green Party for years, and now that work is paying off – for the Jill Stein campaign.
Third Party Politics notes that Jill Stein recently commanded 27 percent of the vote at a straw poll of students at Western Illinois University. That’s just 12 points behind Barack Obama and 6 points behind Mitt Romney.
Join Ben Manski, Jill Stein, and other Illinois liberals in demanding real change, not just vague, broken promises of hope. Wear a button to show that you’re one voter in Illinois who is voting for Jill Stein for President.
