This is essentially little more than a series of links to stories about Greens running for Congress.
Perhaps candidates like Rahim who believe in a sustainable economy and true social justice will change the tenets of a party that is more on the page than the other two, which aren’t even in the right chapter.
Christine Anne Piesyk writes about Tennessee Green John Miglietta who is running for Congress from the 5th District. She writes at Clarkesville Online about his fundraising to date, and his campaign plans in general.

Dallas Reform Party Meeting
July 20th, 2008
The Reform Party meeting of July 18-19 in Dallas nominated Ted Weill of Tylertown, Mississippi for president, and Frank E. McEnulty of Long Beach, California, for vice-president. McEnulty has already been running as the presidential nominee of the New American Independent Party. He is already on the ballot in Colorado. However, when he addressed the convention, he said that he would withdraw as a presidential candidate and hoped to be the vice-presidential nominee for the Reform Party. The presidential vote was: Weill 25, McEnulty 3. McEnulty was then chosen for vice-president by acclamation.
Officers chosen are: David Collison of Houston, Texas, chair; Rodney Martin of Yuma, Arizona, vice-chair; Janelle Skinner-Weill, secretary; Beverly Kennedy, treasurer.
Commenters point out that presidential candidate Ted Weill is a major financial contributor to Lyndon Larouche, Lenora Fulani and Ralph Nader.
