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.”

Stein and other presidential candidates have been making a pitch to Sanders supporters after Hillary Clinton effectively clinched the Democratic nomination with a victory in California and several other states that held contests on Tuesday.
{mosads}Clinton and others Democrats, though, are urging Sanders supporters to unite behind her as she pivots to face presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.

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.

Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee who generally polls a distant third behind Trump and Clinton but ahead of Stein, also called on Sanders supporters to look at his ticket.
Sanders has vowed to continue until the Democratic National Convention in July, despite Clinton claiming the title of presumptive nominee and top Democrats rallying around her.

“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.

She also slammed the former secretary of State, saying Clinton does not have “a track record that has been good for women and children.”
