Politically Speaking: Nader eyes getting on Iowa ballot
Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking
Tomorrow morning, Ralph Nader will go to the Capitol Building in Des Moines to turn in 3,000 petitions he figures will get him on the Nov. 4 presidential ballot in Iowa. It takes a petition with 1,500 signatures to get on the Iowa ballot, so Nader could be on firm ground in his quest. Independent Nader is seeking to get on the Iowa ballot as the Iowa Peace and Freedom party nominee, and if he gets more than 2 percent of the vote, the party will become a ballot-qualified political group.
