Greens ought to run in every race it believes it matters.
It is too simplistic (and simple-minded) to lay the recent Ohio congressional vote, (and Trump's election, and Bush's 2000 win in Florida), at Green's door, let alone cast blame.
Knowing that there was a Green in the Ohio-18 congressional race, the DNC might have much earlier on ramped up financial support for its candidate well earlier than they did. No guarantees, yet it would have been a good idea.
The point is that what is worse than the Republican pulling out this current congressional race in ten days...whatever the reasons....now or in November...what is worse is the idea that alternatives to major parties must preemptively cast themselves out of the game.
And it hardly matters, too, (to my argument) where my vote would've gone were I to have been a voter in Ohio's 18th Congressional District.
