Jill Stein, the presumptive Green Party presidential nominee, is seeing an unprecedented surge of energy for her campaign in the wake of Bernie Sanders’ endorsement of Hillary Clinton.
Stein, who is running her second presidential campaign in four years, said donations to her campaign have increased tenfold in just over 24 hours, obviously due to Bernie Sanders’ endorsement of Hillary Clinton and a resulting fallout from the Democratic Party.
Since Tuesday morning, the Green Party has received over $80,000 in contributions, over half of which comes from first-time donors, and half of which comes in the form of contributions under $50. Tellingly, about 615 of those contributions totalled $27, the exact number commonly trumpeted and solicited by the Sanders campaign during his revolutionary grassroots funding movement.
“There’s been an explosion of Berners coming in through every portal of the campaign, and it’s really exciting,” Stein told US Uncut in a phone interview. “There is so much courage out there to stand up to the marching orders handed down by the usual suspects.”

She is not going to pick pocket as many as Obama did from her that's for sure.

I guess Sanders supporters are felling the Bern now.
What a traitor. He stood against everything Hillary represents and then he just abdicates? Not only but raises his flag in her camp?

You told me how tied to corporate America she was, how un-progressive and flip-flopping she was, and then you put your good name and unblemished word behind her? *Sigh* It was utterly heartbreaking and a punch in the gut but so is life.
