SEATTLE — Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein is holding events in Seattle and Olympia next week.

Our news partner The Seattle Times reports that Stein will campaign at the University of Washington on Monday evening. Her campaign says she’ll be joined by City Council member Kshama Sawant.

Stein is scheduled to speak at the Evergreen State College in Olympia in the afternoon.

Polls show Stein is in fourth place in the presidential race both nationally and in Washington state. She’s trailing Democrat Hillary Clinton, Republican Donald Trump and Libertarian Gary Johnson.

Her major issues include the push for a single-payer health-care system, a quick shift to renewable energy sources, a $15 national minimum wage, big cuts in military spending and free college education.
