Will Nader be on the Michigan ballot?

AP reports: Presidential candidate Ralph Nader still plans to get on the state ballot through the Reform Party's nomination despite a disagreement over who represents the Reform Party in Michigan, a spokesman for Nader's campaign said Thursday.

Kevin Zeese also said the Nader campaign will not accept petition signatures gathered by state Republicans to put Nader on the ballot as an independent presidential candidate.

The Michigan Republican Party had submitted 34,000 signatures to the state Bureau of Elections by mid-afternoon Thursday, more than the 30,000 Nader needed to have filed by 4 p.m. to qualify for the ballot. GOP Executive Director Greg McNeilly said the party planned to turn in 43,000 signatures by the end of the day. -- Nader still plans to get on Michigan ballot through Reform Party (AP via Detroit Free Press)
