In the June 3rd California primary, the highest number of votes received by any third party or independent candidate was 218,847, representing 6.4% of voters. That count went to me, running as a Green for state treasurer on a state bank platform. It was the highest percentage ever gotten by a Green in a statewide partisan California election, but it was not enough to leap the top-two barrier.

That keeps Ellen Brown from being allowed to participate in the California general-election debates, etc. That keeps the idea of Public Banking in the dark. That hurts the common people.
