TRENTON, NJ – The Green Party of New Jersey (GPNJ) is excited to announce its endorsement of internationally renowned journalist, author and activist Chris Hedges as the GPNJ candidate for U.S. Congress in District 12. He challenges Rep. Bonnie Watson-Coleman (D), as well as the entire “political machine” that has control over most of New Jersey. (For information about the towns in District 12, click here.)
Here’s an article about Chris Hedges.
Question is are people smart enough to vote for him? Go New Jersey!

Regardless of what happens, I’m glad he’s doing this.

if hedges has no serious voter contact plans, he isn’t worth supporting.

Hedges is brilliant. He’ll slay them with words.
