Nader nominated by Independence Party in South Carolina

AP reports: Consumer advocate Ralph Nader will be on the presidential ballot in South Carolina in November.

Nader was approved by the South Carolina Election Commission to represent the Independence Party, the offshoot of the Reform Party made popular by Ross Perot in the 1990s.

Nader was nominated about two weeks ago by the state chapter.

"We reconvened our convention and nominated him," said Wayne Griffin of Greer, state party chairman. "We had been in contact with the Nader people this summer about offering him the line (ballot space) for him to run." -- Nader will be on South Carolina ballot (AP via TheState.com)
