Green Party's Stein wins big in Ohio

According to a press release I received on Monday, Green Party candidate Jill Stein won 90 percent of the delegates at the party's Ohio convention during weekend caucusing there. It was the first contest for the greens in 2012.
There has been a lot of heightened press awareness about the party now that former television actress and comedian Roseanne Barr is running for the nomination too.
The greens are on a bunch of state ballots at this point and the Stein campaign is actively fundraising in an attempt to secure federal matching funds. In order to do that, a candidate must agree to spending limits and receive at least $5,000 in at least 20 states.
So far, Republican Buddy Roemer is the only candidate who is receiving federal matching funds.
