Rosanne Barr tops Green Delegate Poll In Oregon
In the June 2-3 convention in Salem, the Pacific Green Party of Oregon handed a narrow victory in the presidential primary to Rosanne Barr, who won five delegates, while Dr. Jill Stein won four.
Barr, widely known for her comedy routines and her long-running TV series, addressed the convention via the internet, as did California delegate to the Green National Committee Kent Mesplay. Dr. Stein made a swing through the state last month, speaking in Portland and Corvallis.
The victory for Barr coincides with a 3 to 1 delegate victory over Dr. Stein in Georgia on Saturday.
Stein, however, is currently ahead in total delegate count throughout the nation, having won 136 of the 181 total delegates allocated in the first 22 state primaries or caucuses to take a formidable lead.

Stephen Reynolds for U.S. House of Representatives, Oregon District 1. Reynolds is a member of the Progressive Party and is a fusion candidate, seeking nominations from other "minor" parties, as well.
