Nader does not appeal Missouri ruling

AP reports: Ralph Nader won't be on Missouri's ballot in November, after failing to appeal a ruling by the secretary of state.

Missouri Secretary of State Matt Blunt had said Aug. 18 that supporters of the independent presidential candidate failed to submit enough valid signatures to qualify for the ballot.

Nader's supporters submitted 12,893 signatures by the July deadline, but Blunt said local election officials verified only 9,006 - 994 short of the number required. -- Nader fails to appeal ballot ruling (AP via ColumbiaTribune.com)
