Twenty-three members of the Green Party are on the California ballot Tuesday – including presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney – with the party poised to collect several big victories, including two supervisor seats in San Francisco. Greens already hold about 50 elected posts throughout the state.

In all, Greens have, in addition to McKinney for President, six candidates for city council or mayor positions, including city council candidates Bob Nanninga (Encinitas), Linda Piera-Avila (Santa Monica) and Jon Mann (Santa Monica); and mayoral candidates former Marina City Councilperson Bruce Delgado (Marina), Kahil Jacobs-Fantauzzi (Berkeley) and Ivan Olsen (Gonzalez).

Greens are also fielding seven congressional candidates, including Carol Wolman (CD1), Dave Heller (CD9), Barry Hermanson (CD12), Carol Brouillet (CD14), Peter Myers (CD15), Phil Rockey (CD19) and Tom Lash (CD46).
