WI Green Party meets candidates for president

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- It's not just Democrats and Republicans running for president this year.

The Wisconsin Green Party held its spring meeting in Madison on Saturday. Members of the party heard from the five candidates running for the Green Party's nomination for president. Members say this could be a breakout year for the party.

"This is the best year we've ever seen," says Dave Schwab with the Wisconsin Green Party. "People are more receptive than ever. If you look at polls they reveal numbers of Americans are disenchanted with the two party system."

A nominee will be chosen at the Green Party's national convention, which is coming up in August in Houston, Texas. The five candidates are Sedinam Kinamo Christin Moyowasifza-Curry, Jill Stein, Darryl Cherney, William P. Kreml and Kent Mesplay.
