Nader/Camejo Campaign Hails Court Victories in Maryland, New Mexico, & Pennsylvania
Washington, DC: The Independent presidential campaign of Ralph Nader and Peter Miguel Camejo today hailed decisions by courts in Maryland and Pennsylvania today.
The Maryland Court of Appeals, the state’s highest court, found the ballot access law in Maryland unconstitutional for not counting registered voters who had moved to a different county from where they had registered. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court overruled a decision that had kept Nader off the ballot because he was running on multiple party lines. In New Mexico, a judge who had thrown Nader off the ballot on Friday was found to have contributed $1,000 to the Kerry campaign. She withdrew her opinion and recused herself from the case.
"The anti-Democratic Party should stop trying to limit voter choices through harrassment and legal technicalities and start debating the issues," said Ralph Nader.
The Nader/Camejo campaign is currently on the ballot in 37 states and in litigation in seven of those. It is also in litigation trying to get on the ballot in seven other states. It is waiting for the state of Hawaii to finish its review of the signatures submitted by Nader/Camejo 2004.
