Maine Secretary of State leaves Nader on the ballot

AP reports: Maineīs secretary of state ruled Wednesday that Ralph Naderīs name should stay on ballots in Maine as an independent candidate for president in November.

In affirming a recommendation by a staff hearing officer, Secretary of State Dan Gwadosky rejected challenges to ballot listings for Nader and running mate Peter Camejo that had been brought by two Democratic activists, including Maine Democratic Party Chairwoman Dorothy Melanson.

The challengers maintained that the Nader campaign had failed to comply with some of Maineīs ballot access requirements. -- Maine secretary of state affirms Naderīs place on ballot (AP via MaineToday.com)
