Nader trying again to gather 1000 voters in Oregon

Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader will make a second attempt to qualify for the Oregon ballot on June 26 in Portland, his campaign announced Thursday.

Nader will attempt to get on the November general election ballot by attracting at least 1,000 state voters to an "assembly of electors" between 5 and 7 p.m. at Benson Polytechnic High School.

The veteran consumer activist, who has run for the presidency twice before, failed to attract enough voters to an April 5 assembly at Portland's Roseland Theater.

Nader and his aides blamed the poor showing on organizational failures and competition with the college basketball final on television. -- Nader will try again in Oregon
