Re: “I'm sick of whiny third-party candidates

In order to compete in partisan races, the Green Party must achieve and maintain ballot access. In most states that requires running a statewide candidate which can include President, often Gubernatorial as well and pass a percentage threshold.

Jill Stein, the Green Party Presidential, was on the ballot in 38 states. Roughly 19 states have ballot status.

So by most state laws in order to run a viable campaign for the most local partisan office, it usually means there had to have been a statewide candidate passing the threshold. While most elected Greens are non partisan, the stepping stone to winning the next level is through ballot access from statewide (including Presidential) campaigns.
