Greens Spurn Nader

The Green Party has rejected Ralph Nader as their candidate, instead picking Texas attorney David Cobb. Nader still has his endorsement from the Reform Party — founded by Ross Perot in 1992 and garnered more than 19 million votes, but has recently languished, with Pat Buchanan only receiving 1% in the 2000 presidential race.

The rejection from the Green Party will continue to diminish Nader’s chances for getting ballot access — already a short list — in states other than: Colorado, Kansas, Mississippi, Montana, South Carolina, Florida and Michigan. Nader refuses to throw in the towel, even while his campaign flounders and he asks supporters to vote for Kerry in swing states.
