Updated Election Results for Nader/Gonzalez State by State

Minneapolis Super Rally to Open the Debates!

At 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 4th, during the Republican National Convention, the Nader/Gonzalez Campaign will be holding a Super Rally for 2,000-2,500 people at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis.

The Nader/Gonzalez webteam, in association with indie media and volunteer bloggers, will do their best to bring you live coverage of the event. As the 7:00 CDT Rally kickoff approaches, check out the live coverage page on this site:


Featured guests include Cindy Sheehan, Nellie McKay, Jesse Ventura, David Rovics, Ike Reilly and Tom Neilson.

Orchestra HallComing on the heels of the August 27th rally in Denver, this Super Rally will be a call to action for opening the presidential debates.

During his 2000 campaign, Ralph Nader drew sellout crowds to Super Rallies in arenas from Portland’s Memorial Coliseum to Madison Square Garden.

After the election, the PBS NewsHour’s Mark Shields called the Nader Super Rallies "the most exciting political development of the campaign year."

"My apology to Ralph Nader for not demanding that he be included in the debates," Shields said.

Now, in 2008, Nader is back, and on track to be on the ballot in 45 states — the campaign was on only 34 in 2004 — and the Nader/Gonzalez ticket is at 6 percent in the latest CNN poll.

These rallies will be part of a massive outpouring of protest in Denver and Minneapolis against the two corporate controlled parties and their policies of perpetual militarism and war.

Nader/Gonzalez is aiming to bust open the presidential debates.

As Mr. Nader says, if tens of millions of Americans can hear the Nader/Gonzalez message through the Presidential debates, it will be a three way race.

You can help make it happen.  Make your way to Minneapolis.  Here are the details:
