Updated Election Results for Nader/Gonzalez State by State

Hope’s Beautiful Daughters

Hope’s Beautiful Daughters .

St. Augustine said that hope has two beautiful daughters – anger and courage.

The Nader/Gonzalez roadtrippers are the beautiful sons and daughters of hope – they are angry at what is happening to our country – but they are taking courageous positive action to make things better.

In West Virginia, Albert Marino and his team are on their way to putting Nader/Gonzalez on the ballot in the mountain state.

In Illinois, Joshua Tucker and his team have 25,000 signatures in hand and will bust it this month to hit our 50,000 goal by June 23. (Pictured here is Ryen Karman with a friend in Chicago)

Joshua wrote this to us from the road:

“In that moment when I stop and look into a person’s face waiting and hoping they will sign our petition, I have glimpsed not only the profound feelings of pessimism and disenfranchisement so many Americans carry about our country, but also the brave compassionate nature of so many who are signing and struggling with us for justice and for our dreams.”

Last week we put out a message calling for new roadtrippers. More than 150 of you responded. It was overwhelming. We plan to launch a road crew in the south and the mountain states here in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more photos, videos and stories from the road.

Hope and courage.

We are so proud of Joshua, Albert and our entire nationwide team of roadtrippers.

Because of their courageous hard work – and your generous support – Nader/Gonzalez is set to have a serious presence in almost every state this election.

In 2004, we made 34 state ballot lines, but missed Hawaii, Arizona and Illinois.

Now, thanks to your support, we have a great chance to be on the ballots in each one of those states – and more than 40 nationwide.

Together, we will make a difference.
