CHICAGO -- Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein paid a visit to WGN Friday morning.

She talked about why Chicago voters should cast a ballot for her in November.

Thursday, Stein and her vice presidential running mate Ajamu Baraka campaigned on the city’s West Side.

She talked about Chicago’s gun violence and her pro-gun control stance.

She also said Mayor Emanuel should step down, for his handling of police misconduct.

Before her visit, Stein was charged for spray painting construction equipment during a protest in North Dakota against a refinery pipeline.

Stein told WGN she will return to North Dakota to face her charges.
