THE RACE TO THE WHITE HOUSE

Nader Loses 2nd Calif. Ballot Bid

August 12, 2004|From Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — The Green Party of California has rejected a request from Ralph Nader to hold a special nominating convention that would have given him another shot at appearing on the state's ballot as a presidential candidate.

Nader fell far short last week of submitting the 153,035 signatures required for him to make the California ballot as an independent presidential contender. His campaign then tried to persuade Green Party leaders to dump David Cobb, a Eureka lawyer, as their presidential nominee and substitute Nader.

But the party's executive committee voted 11 to 7 on Tuesday not to convene its members for a meeting to reconsider their commitment to Cobb.
