"Nader back on Florida ballot -- for now"

AP reports: Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader was back on Florida's ballot Monday as a candidate for the Reform Party - but his slot was shaky. ...

The state's top elections official directed local elections supervisors to include Nader's name after she appealed a court order to the contrary.

Although Circuit Judge Kevin Davey ordered Secretary of State Glenda Hood last week to remove Nader's name, her appeal Monday to the 1st District Court of Appeal suspended that order.

However, Davey has the power to reimpose his order and the state Democratic Party, which had challenged Nader's placement on the ballot, immediately asked him to hold an emergency hearing to do just that. -- Nader back on Florida ballot -- for now (AP via The News-Press)
