Green Party of Ohio picks a candidate
(2008-04-07)
(WOUB) - Meeting in Athens over the weekend, the Green Party of Ohio picked Cynthia McKinney as its nominee for president of the United States.

McKinney is a former Democratic congresswoman from Georgia.

Green Party Secretary Tim Kettler says she received the backing of 55 percent of the delegates at the party's convention.

But that nomination is not enough to get her name on the ballot.

That will require a petition drive and five thousand signatures.

Kettler says personal contact with voters is key in Green Party campaigns.

Kettler himself is a Green Party candidate.

He's running for Ohio's 20th District Senate seat.
