Nader Determined To Stay On AR Ballot

September 22, 2004 -- Posted at 2:35 PM CDT

LITTLE ROCK (AP)  Presidential candidate Ralph Nader wants action today in his fight to regain a place on the Arkansas general election ballot.

A state judge has ordered Nader off the November second ballot. Attorneys for the liberal consumer advocate appealed the ruling by Pulaski County Circuit Judge Timothy Fox to the Arkansas Supreme Court on Tuesday.

Nader claims the order was based on an unconstitutional reading of state law and that the judge abused his authority in issuing the order. Nader wants the state Supreme Court to require written legal arguments by this afternoon and set oral arguments for tomorrow morning.

In a lawsuit filed by the state Democratic Party, Fox ruled Monday that Nader supporters failed to establish a clear affiliation to a political party, as required by state law.
