Socialist Workers Party Aims for Ballot
From the August 15 Washington Post

Supporters of the D.C. Socialist Workers Party filed 4,400 signatures yesterday to place the party's ticket on the Nov. 7 general election ballot.

For U.S. president, the party has nominated James Harris, who is on leave from his job at a garment distribution center in Atlanta. The vice presidential nominee is Margaret Trowe, a meatpacker at a slaughterhouse in Austin, Minn. For D.C. delegate to Congress, the party has nominated Sam Manuel, a railroad freight conductor.

Mary Martin, chairwoman of the party's D.C. campaign and a former D.C. Council candidate, said the socialist workers' ticket attracted more than 1,000 votes in the 1998 citywide election. The party supports D.C. statehood, abortion rights and an end to sanctions against Iraq.
