Camejo accepts Green Party request to put him on state ballots as their 2004
presidential candidate despite misgivings

Post-election - The Recall
Because of the Green Partys participation in the recall election we have gained new respect and sympathy from millions of people in California and throughout the United States.
by Peter Camejo
The Green Party made history in the recall election on several levels. In part because of the 5.3% of the vote we received in November 2002, and in part because of the nature of the recall, we were immediately considered a major candidate by the media.
This status resulted in a historic breakthrough. A third party gubernatorial
candidate was included in televised debates. The Green Party has reached this
status not because of any one specific event or candidate but because of our
overall following and successes in California. Read

Peter to be in the debates and get the level of exposure he has received
this time. Without that large vote total, it would not be happening...Continued

patterns, educational resources and academic achievement, and hate
