Don't do it as a Green Party candidate.
If you must run, run as a Green-friendly Dem.
Or better yet, a Green Republican.
I am speaking as someone who was a Nader supporter, and a Sondy Pope-Roberts supporter.
She worked her ass off to just narowly beat that dumbfuck Republican Skindrud.
So now the Republicans are very keen on going after her this coming election.
So what you would effectively be doing by running as a Green would be to help cut enough liberal votes away from Sondy so that whatever Republican they dredge up (I think its some retired Air Force guy) gets elected.
Not exactly helpful. That will really get us on the road to campagin finance reform -- not!
Not that I'm against third parties. I certainly am not. But I firmly believe in picking and choosing the right disctrict in which to run. Having Greens run in swing races so that the balance goes Republican only ends up hurting our cause in the end.
As for the issue of campaign reform (which by the way, Sondy is very supportive of) it is currently an issue between the majority leaders (Republican) and our Democratic Governor. It ain't Sondy's to call.
I have a great suggestion. call Sondy, and tell her that you will run against her as a Green unless she comes out strongly on campaign finance. I think it would work. Work with her on it.
Moreover, it would save you both a hell of a lot of time this summer.
