MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A Madison activist is on the Wisconsin ballot as the Green Party’s candidate for vice president.

But there’s only one problem – he’s not running.

Ben Manski offered his name as a place-holder when Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein was circulating her nominating petitions in the Badger State. And as a result, Manski was listed as Stein’s running mate instead of the choice she made later, Cheri Honkala of Philadelphia.

But with Manski on the ballot, Wisconsin voters have 2 candidates from their own state to choose from as vice president.

The other was put on the ballot by design – Republican Paul Ryan of Janesville.
