According to a Minnesota Public Radio News Humphrey Institute Poll, Obama now leads McCain by 14 points.

This means that 5 percent of Minnesotans can "safely" vote for Cynthia McKinney and Obama will still beat McCain by at least 9 points.

In Minnesota, 5 percent means major party status, which gives the Green Party guaranteed ballot access, public campaign subsidies, debate invitations, and media attention.

I watched last night’s presidential debate in a theater filled with Democrats, and even they cheered at this audience question:

"How can we trust either of you with our money when both parties got -- got us into this global economic crisis?"

The Democrats and Republicans didn’t warn you the corporate banks would play casino with your retirement.

The Green Party of Minnesota and its endorsed candidates accept no contributions from corporations or political action committees (PACs). For more information about the Green Party, visit www.gp.org.

I am planning to attend our Election Night Party at Casablanca Restaurant, 2630 University Ave SE in Minneapolis. I don't use a laptop, but I will forward this to my state and local Green Party listservs, as well as the Cynthia McKinney listserv. Thanks!

Thanks a lot Tom. We'd love to have a Minnesota contingent join us on election night. Best of luck to Farheen and all your candidates!

Thanks! I was out doorknocking for Farheen tonight. I see Kevin Chavis on your list of bloggers. If I can borrow someone's laptop election night I may try to write a post...
