Cynthia McKinney won’t run for President:
Controversial former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney spent months attending Green Party events around the nation designed to help raise money to pay off her 2006 campaign debt. And — after months of flirting with making a run for Green Presidential nomination — McKinney formally withdrew from the Green nomination contest. In a letter dated Monday and addressed to the Steering Committee of the Green Party of the United States, McKinney wrote: “After careful consideration about the political conditions facing our nation, the level of development within the [Green] Party, my own readiness to take on such a daunting task and my own long postponed personal priorities, I write to inform the Party that I must at this time withdraw my name from consideration for the Party’s 2008 Presidential Nominating contest.” The move leaves McKinney free to make yet another attempt to recapture her former House seat next year.
We still may have her around to pick on next year.
But the Greens got played because apparently they helped McKinney retire some $50,000 in campaign debt.
