Jill Stein
Green Party


Stein is a Harvard-educated medical doctor and activist from Massachusetts.

Stein ran for president in 2012 and Governor of Massachusetts twice.

As an environmental activist, her priorities are fixing climate change and eradicating student debt.

She wants the nation's energy to be 100% renewable by 2030 and GMOs to be banned. She also wants to raise federal minimum wage to $15-per-hour.

Darrell Castle
Constitution Party


Castle is a lawyer and political activist from Memphis, Tennessee.

Castle served as a marine during the Vietnam War and has been an attorney for over 30 years.

In an interview, he called himself more libertarian than 2016 Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Gary Johnson.

He founded a Christian mission with his wife to help homeless children in Romania.
