Green Party Holds Convention in Baltimore

The Green Party nominated its candidate for the 2012 presidential campaign in Baltimore this weekend.

Dr. Jill Stein, a physician from Massachusetts, was formally nominated at the 2012 Green Party convention, which took place at the University of Baltimore and the Holiday Inn on West Lombard Street.
While the Green Party's convention was held in Maryland, there is a chance that Stein won’t be on the ballot here this fall. The Greens have until August 6 to present 3,000 valid signatures to the State Board of Elections to put Stein’s name on the ballot.

In any case, the convention's locale got press from a number of national outlets, including the New York Times and Time.
Jill Stein picked homeless activist Cheri Honkala as her running mate over actress and comedian Roseanne Barr, who had also been seeking the nomination.
The Republicans and Democrats will host their conventions in Tampa Bay and Charlotte, respectively, in August.
