Mckinney campaign in LA gets highest % green vote in the country.
- McKinney's .47% (over 9,000 votes) was the highest % from all the states on which she was on the ballot).
Louisiana was the only state where Mckinney received more votes than Ralph Nader and we almost beat Bob Barr of the Libertarian party as well.
This shows a real base exists for green politics in Louisiana.
Thanks to Robert Caldwell, especially for leading the Mckinney effort.
It should be noted that 710 of over 900 votes in Orleans Parish came from absentee ballots, probably reflecting support from residents who are still in exile around the country.
