Federal Election Commission Approves Primary Season Matching Funds for Jill Stein

On August 28, the Federal Election Commission declared that Jill Stein is eligible for primary season matching funds, and sent her campaign a check for $100,000.

The FEC took an unusually long time to approve these funds. Stein’s submission had been made on July 12. Here is the FEC press release. Thanks to the Center for Competitive Politics for this news.

    They probably delayed approval to hamper Stein’s Ballot access efforts.

  3. That is some serious money for the Stein campaign. I don’t have figures in front of me but I imagine that nearly doubles their fundraising for the aggregate average previous months.
