Nader submits New York petitions

AP reports: Supporters of Ralph Nader's independent presidential campaign said yesterday they had filed enough petitions with the state to put him on the New York ballot.

In New York, independent candidates for statewide office must submit petitions containing the signatures of at least 15,000 registered voters to qualify for the November ballot.

"The campaign submitted more than 27,500 signatures," said Mark Dunlea, a state Green Party leader assisting the Nader effort. -- Nader's got the names in NY (AP via Newsday.com)
