Updated Election Results for Nader/Gonzalez State by State

Six Days, $34,000

Six Days, $34,000 .

Four days ago we announced our goal of putting Ralph Nader on the ballot in five more states - for a total of fifteen states - by July 20 and that we would need to raise $60,000 to get it done.

How are we doing?

In those four days, we’ve raised - thanks to you - more than $26,000.

Later today in South Carolina, we will turn in more than 18,000, more than enough to get us on the ballot. We only need 10,000 valid.

South Carolina - check.

Later today in Rhode Island, we will turn in more than 2,000 signatures.

We need only 1,000 valid to get us on the ballot there.

Rhode Island - check.

In Massachusetts, we have about 17,000 signatures in hand. We need 10,000 valid. Our goal is 20,000.

We’re well on our way in Massachusetts.In Missouri, we have 14,000 in hand. We need 10,000 valid. Our goal is 20,000.

We’re well on our way in Missouri.

Our South Carolina road crew is being deployed to Arkansas this week.

They should knock out Arkansas by the end of the week.

So, by Sunday, July 21, as promised, we will have 15 states in the bag. (See updated map here.)

On the political front, McCain and Obama are in a dead heat. (See Rasmussen daily tracking poll here.)

CNN’s most recent poll puts Ralph at six percent.

Ralph has been on the road campaigning, most recently in Charlottesville, Virginia. Check out this news video.

And as the panderer Obama moves to the right, many of his supporters are taking a new look at Nader/Gonzalez.

Check out, for example, Allison Kilkenny’s Huffington Post blog titled The Other N Word.

And see also Greg Kafoury’s After the Obama Betrayal.

Our short term goal - raise the remaining $34,000 by July 20. Help us get there now.

Our medium term goal, put Nader/Gonzalez on the ballot in 45 states by September 20.

Our long term goal - change the country.

Step by step.

Together, we are making a difference.
