Progressive Party Earns Ballot Access for 2012

Thanks to the strong showing of Walt Brown in the race for State Treasurer, the Progressive Party of Oregon has maintained its right to nominate candidates in the 2012 general election.

That right depended upon earning at least 1% of the vote in a statewide race.  Walt Brown earned 2.70% in the race for State Treasurer.

Progressive candidate for U.S. Senate, Rick Staggenborg, earned 0.99% of the statewide vote.

If Walt Brown had not received over 1% of the vote, the Progressive Party would have needed to increase its membership from 1,952 today to 13,829 by the start of August 2012.

Thanks to Walt Brown, Beverly Brown, Alaina Melville, and everyone who helped Walt meet our goal for this election.
