Green Party Watch
From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:
A team from the Green Party have qualified as write-in candidates for the statewide primary election with the hope of reaching the November ballot.
The Green Party’s Anita Rios and Bob Fitrakis filed as write-ins for the gubernatorial race. Rios is the candidate for governor, while Fitrakis is her lieutenant governor running mate. Rios, of Toledo, previously has run for local offices in that city and for U.S. Senate in 2012. Fitrakis, from Columbus, ran as a Green Party candidate for governor in 2006 and for Congress in 2012…
These candidates will have to reach a 500 vote threshold to qualify for the November ballot, said Matt McClellan, SoS Husted’s press secretary.
