In addition, the campaign is seeking to gain support to be included in the presidential debates. “We have a candidate that is on 46 ballots, and running write-in campaigns in three additional states, yet we continue to be ignored by media and shut of debate,” said Carl Romanelli, Coordinator for Stein/Baraka in Pennsylvania. “We are determined to see a debate with all candidates included, not just the two despised corporate candidates,” he said.
