Nader off the New Mexico ballot

KOB-TV in Albuquerque reports: A state district judge in Albuquerque has ruled that Ralph Nader will not appear on New Mexico's general election ballot as an independent presidential candidate.

State District Judge Wendy York ruled on Friday that Nader is ineligible to appear on the ballot. She said that under New Mexico law, Nader cannot run as an independent candidate here while running under political parties such as the Reform Party in other states.

The state Democratic Party, who filed the lawsuit, also contended Nader didn't submit enough valid signatures of registered voters to qualify for the ballot. York rejected that challenge. -- Judge pulls Nader off ballot (KOBTV.com)
