Last year, she offered Massachusetts voters a progressive choice for governor. Now Jill Stein, a physician and leader in the Massachusetts Green-Rainbow Party, is jumping into the 2012 presidential race, running to the left of Barack Obama.
Stein announced her candidacy for the Green Party of the United States’ nomination last week, calling for an end to corporate control of the government and a serious commitment to environmental protections.
