Howie Hawkins is a Green Party presidential candidate from New York and a former enlisted Marine. He was New York’s Green Party candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2006. In 2010, Hawkins ran as the Green Party’s candidate for Governor of New York and restored ballot status for the party by receiving more than the necessary 50,000 votes. In 2014, Hawkins ran again for the same office. He received nearly five percent of the vote and moved the Green Party to Line D on the ballot. Hawkins ran a third time for Governor of New York in 2018. He is currently seeking the presidential nomination of the Green Party in 2020.
On this episode we talk to Howie about his platform, his service, and (of course) politics.
