FEC approves Green Party Committee

The FEC recently approved the Green Party's Senate Campaign Committee.
Ballot Access News, in their March 1, 2007 edition is reporting that on February 8, the Federal Election Commission voted 6-0 to recognized the Green Party's Senate Campaign Committee. Until then, only the Democratic and Republican Parties had any FEC-approved congressional campaign committees.

The advantage to a party of having such a committee is that donors can give larger amounts to a national party's congressional committee than they can to any particular congressional candidate.

The Green Party does not accept any corporate contributions and is entirely funded by real human beings.
