Subject: Re: [tcCannabisClub] Should I run for the Minnesota Senate?
Running on the grass roots party platform may seem like a fun way to go but it won’t be 500 signatures you will need but rather more like 2000. It will be a percentage of the vote in the last election and since a Senate seat is twice the population of a Rep seat, so is the number of signatures needed. If you are really trying to get in their face, running in the DFL or GOP primaries will get you more votes and attention. It will get you in the debates and on the ballot for only your sign fee of about $100. and you can file the hardship waiver with only a few signatures to get around that too. I strongly advise against going the Grassroots Party route unless or until it grows an adequate base, remember, Chris came in a distant 4th and had no affect on either of the big 2 parties. We need to run races with some hope of winning as well as making our presence known as loud as possible, that does not happen with a third party candidacy failure. That is my advice having done both.
