Green Party reaffirms commitment to running a strong presidential campaign
Wishes Dr. West good luck in his independent run
The Steering Committee of the Green Party of the United States (GPUS) is surprised to learn of Dr. West’s decision to no longer seek the Green Party Presidential Nomination and to run as an independent. On behalf of the Green Party of the US, we thank Dr. West for his strong consideration towards running as a Green. We deeply appreciate the significant resources that the West campaign has already invested toward securing our party’s ballot lines in several states.

Our country has a history of independent political candidates. However, we believe the key to winning true political independence in this country will not rest on any one campaign, but building lasting movements and grassroots organizations. A strong, independent political party is needed now more than ever to provide an alternative to the two parties of war and Wall Street.
We hope the West campaign continues to advance the social and economic justice demands of the working class and champion real solutions to the urgent life or death threats of global war and ecological destruction.
The Presidential Nominating Convention for the Green Party of the United States takes place next year. Our ballot access campaigns underway in multiple states will proceed as we progress towards 2024. We welcome and encourage prospective Presidential candidates who can run strong campaigns that will underscore our uncompromising commitment to people, planet, and peace.
