Angela Walker tapped for VP by Green Party's Hawkins

May 13, 2020 12:30 pm
Jessica Barr is reporting for the Legislative Gazette Howie Hawkins, the front-runner for the Green Party’s 2020 presidential nomination, has selected Angela Walker as his running mate. Walker is a truck driver from South Carolina, and a veteran labor and racial justice activist. Walker previously ran twice for office as an independent socialist. “I’ve known Angela since 2014. She knows the issues. She speaks with a clarity and conviction that people understand and believe,” Hawkins said. “She has the experience as a worker, a black woman, a union leader, and a movement organizer to connect with the working-class, minority, and young voters our campaign wants to mobilize. She was my first choice and I’m so glad she accepted.” Walker is the legislative director of the Amalgamated Transit Union in Milwaukee and was a leader in the 2011 Wisconsin uprising against Gov. Scott Walker. The Green Party is on the ballot in 25 states, a sufficient number to receive 305 electoral votes in the 2020 election, 35 more than the 270 needed to win. The party continues to petition for access to the ballots in the remaining states.
