Green Party Candidate Jill Stein Rallies Undecided Texas Voters

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein finished her tour of the Lone Star State with two stops in Austin on Monday.  Stein, during her speech, to supporters said one of the biggest challenges has been competing for undecided voters in order to count as a major political party.

“If we get to 5 percent then it’s a whole new ballgame; then we’re on the ballot, we’re a recognized political party," Stein told reporters.
The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll shows Stein with 2 percent of the overall national vote.

Stein made campaign stops in El Paso, Houston and San Antonio before closing out her tour of the Lone Star State in Austin.
