Jill Stein May Run Again for President on Green Party Line

Dr. Jill Stein, a Boston-area Jewish physician, has launched an exploratory committee for the 2016 presidential race in what would be her second run.

Stein, 64, of Lexington, Mass., announced the committee’s launch on Friday during a speech at the National Press Club in Washington, the Boston Globe reported.

As the Green Party candidate in 2012, Stein appeared on ballots in 36 states and won 469,000 votes, or some 0.36 percent of the ballots cast.

Stein ran unsuccessfully for governor of Massachusetts in 2002 and 2010.
