Green Party Presidential Debate scheduled for Jan. 13
According to the Alameda County (CA) Green Party, there will be a Presidential Debate on January 13, 2 p.m. in San Francisco. Ralph Nader, Cynthia McKinney, Elaine Brown, Jared Ball and Kent Mesplay are all listed.

The California Primary on February 5 will include all five of these candidates as well as Kat Swift of Texas, and Jesse Johnson of the West Virginia Mountain Party, which affiliated with the Green Party (US) this summer. In most states, delegates to the GPUS Presidential Nominating Convention will be selected by state convention or other internal methods such as balloting, but in four states (Arkansas, California, Massacheustss,, & Illinois) and DC there will be a state run primary. California, which will likely control between 20 and 25 percent of the delegates at the national convention, is the big prize and the race to watch. A Green Debate in San Francisco is very appropriate.

Whether the debate will be televised live or recorded for re-broadcast remains to be seen. At any rate, if you are in the San Francisco Area this is an event that is NOT to be missed!
