Green Party candidate vows to keep fighting Sanders ‘revolution’
The likely presidential nominee of the Green Party, Jill Stein, is reaching out to supporters of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, telling them that she’ll keep up the fight for his ideas.
“We are here in the event that they feel like they don’t have a place to go,” Stein told CNN on Tuesday evening.
Stein, the 2012 Green Party nominee, said she wanted Sanders supporters to “know that there’s a plan B here to continue to fight that revolution” against the political establishment.
She also took to Twitter to make an appeal to Sanders supporters, accusing Democrats of “blatantly rigging the system” against Sanders “from the start.”
Don’t forget, @BernieSanders supporters signed up for a political revolution. Hillary is the antithesis of the revolution. #PrimaryDay

Trump also made a pitch Tuesday night for Sanders supporters “who have been left out in the cold by a rigged system” to support him.
“If Bernie endorses Hillary, I urge Bernie’s supporters not to throw in the towel,” Stein told CNN of her hope that Sanders supporters would back her over Clinton.
