Updated Election Results for Nader/Gonzalez State by State

Over the Rainbow

Over the Rainbow .

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why oh why can’t I?

The aim of the Nader/Gonzalez campaign?

Stick it to both corrupt corporate parties in 2008.

In every state in the union.

Yesterday, we rang the bell in New Mexico.

A couple of weeks ago, you – our loyal supporters – donated more than $10,000 over the course of a short couple of days to fund our ballot drive in New Mexico.

As soon as you donated the money, we sent out our volunteers to New Mexico.

And yesterday, at the state capitol in Sante Fe, our volunteers turned in 6,747 signatures – more than twice the number needed to put Nader/Gonzalez on the ballot in New Mexico.

Mission accomplished.

Thank you.

Tomorrow, our volunteers will deliver more than 1,500 signatures – more than double the number needed – to the Board of Elections in Pearl City, Hawaii.

Mission soon to be accomplished in Hawaii.

In a little over a week, you helped raise over $50,000 to fund a ballot drive in Arizona.

As a result, our folks are on the ground now in Phoenix and Tucson.

In Arizona, we need to collect at least 40,000 signatures by June 4.

We anticipate meeting the Arizona deadline and putting Nader/Gonzalez on the ballot in John McCain’s home state.

Again, thank you.

Next up Kansas – home to Dorothy, Auntie Em, and Toto.

(Little known fact – Frank Baum, the author of the original Wizard of Oz, and Yip Harburg, the man who wrote the lyrics for the movie – were both populists in the Nader/Gonzalez tradition. The Wizard represented Wall Street? The Wicked Witch the railroads?)

In Kansas, we need 10,000 signatures to get Nader/Gonzalez on the ballot.

We need to raise $15,000 to give the people of Kansas the chance to vote for Nader/Gonzalez and to help counteract the power of the agribusiness giants that dominate the Midwest.

State by state, we’ll put Nader/Gonzalez on the map.

We would like to raise the money needed to fund our Kansas ballot drive in short order.

We’re looking for 150 of you – our loyal supporters – to give at least $100 each to put Nader/Gonzalez on the ballot in Kansas.

Please, help us now to get ‘er done in Kansas.

Please, donate now to Nader/Gonzalez.

Make your dreams come true.
