The Green Party’s Jill Stein has offered Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders top billing on her party’s ticket, should he choose to leave the Democrats, the party that has, by all appearances, resisted him throughout his wildly popular campaign.
While Sanders is still technically a Democratic Party presidential candidate, he has yet to endorse frontrunner Hillary Clinton, though he has ceased campaigning for delegates and appears to be winding down his efforts. Stein, however, is urging him to continue his political movement within her party.
“I’ve invited Bernie to sit down explore collaboration – everything is on the table,” Stein told the Guardian. “If he saw that you can’t have a revolutionary campaign in a counter-revolutionary party, he’d be welcomed to the Green Party. He could lead the ticket and build a political movement.”
