Green Party Candidate Jill Stein Courts Bernie Sanders Supporters

Now that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is effectively eliminated from the Democratic primary, the battle for his supporters is in full swing. Donald Trump laid out a welcoming message to the Sanders camp in a speech Tuesday, and Hillary Clinton urged party unity. Now, third-party candidates are starting to get in on the action. Green Party nominee Jill Stein is presenting herself as a "plan b" for Sanders supporters, saying that she's similar to their candidate and would bring change to the United States.

Sanders went from a long-shot candidate to the head of a national progressive movement in months, and Stein said she believed many of his supporters, turned off by presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's record and a bruising primary season, might go Stein's way.

Stein offered condolences to Sanders supporters and praised Sanders for running a "revolutionary" movement that spoke to the issues she also cares about in an interview with CNN Tuesday evening.

"We are here in the event that they feel like they don't have a place to go," Stein said.

Stein was also the 2012 Green Party nominee, and received 0.36% of the vote.
