Updated Election Results for Nader/Gonzalez State by State

Nader v. Obama

Nader v. Obama .

We were thrilled to hear that Barack Obama is open to debating Ralph Nader.

On Meet the Press on May 4, Senator Obama told Tim Russert that he was willing to debate with "any of my opponents about what this country means, what makes it great."

Senator Obama!

What a breath of fresh air!


A Democratic presidential candidate who is willing to debate the corporate takeover of our democracy!

Can’t wait.

Nader v. Obama.

Nader and Obama could barnstorm the state - can you say Lincoln-Douglas? - debating public health insurance, curbing the excesses of the oil industry, reversing U.S. policy in the Middle East, and the corporate takeover of our democracy.

What a breath of fresh air!

Did we say that already?

Thank you Senator Obama for being so open-minded!

That is what truly makes America great.

Open, public debates that strengthen democracy.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

In the meantime, back here on the ground, the Nader/Gonzalez campaign is busy trying to overcome the Democratic Party’s historic ballot obstructionism in Senator Obama’s home state of Illinois.

Last time out (that would be 2004), the Democrats blocked Nader from the ballot in Illinois.

This time (that would be 2008), we’re not going to take no for an answer.

We’ve got our Nader’s Raiders on the ground in the Land of Lincoln.

And so far, they have collected over 10,000 signatures on our way to the 50,000 signatures we need by June 26.

And in the four short days of our Illinois ballot access fundraising drive, we have collected $34,876 from 352 of you - our loyal supporters.

So now, we only need an additional 150 of you to donate $100 each and we’ll meet our goal of $50,000 to get Nader/Gonzalez on the ballot in Illinois.

We want to get there by the end of the week.

So, please help us get there now.

And once we’re on the ballot in Illinois, maybe Senator Obama would be willing to host Ralph Nader for the historic Nader/Obama debates.

Let us know when and where, Senator.
