Jill Stein To Hold Rally At Penn State

Third-party presidential candidate Jill Stein will hold a rally at Penn State on Wednesday in the HUB’s Freeman Auditorium. The event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. during which time Stein will share her policy positions and encourage Penn Staters and others in attendance to volunteer to join her in her campaign for the oval office.

Stein announced her campaign in February and was later selected as the Green Party’s presidential nominee, and has since selected Ajamu Baraka as her running mate. Neither Stein nor Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson qualified for the first general election debate, which will be held on September 26.

Stein’s visit will mark the second appearance by a potential candidate for the 2016 election cycle. In April, Bernie Sanders held a rally in Rec Hall. Hillary Clinton’s daughter Chelsea also stopped in State College earlier this month to rally on her mother’s behalf.

Freeman Auditorium isn’t quite as big of a stage as Rec Hall, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see at least one other presidential candidate come through Happy Valley before the election in November. You can find more information about the rally and RSVP to attend here.
