Mountain Party to Affiliate with Green Party

Ever since November 2000, the Mountain Party has been the only ballot-qualified party in West Virginia, other than the Democratic and Republican Parties. It has run for state office and ran a candidate for U.S. Senate in 2006, but it has never run a presidential candidate.

On July 8, at its state convention, it voted to become the West Virginia affiliate of the Green Party. There still remains the formality that the national Green Party must accept the Mountain Party, but it is extremely likely that the national party will gladly do so. That will increase the number of states in which the Green Party (by whatever name) is ballot-qualified, from 19 states, to 20 states, the party’s first increase in 2007.
