Oregon Progressive Party Nominates Rocky Anderson for President

Ralph and RockyAt a press conference in Portland today, Ralph Nader introduced and announced his support for Rocky Anderson as the 2012 nominee of the Oregon Progressive Party for President of the United States.

The Oregon Progressive Party is a ballot-qualified minor party in Oregon.  It was created by voter petition as the Peace Party in 2008 and that year nominated Ralph Nader for President.  The party changed its name in 2009 to the Oregon Progressive Party to reflect its broader platform.

Rocky Anderson is the progressive former 2-term Mayor of Salt Lake City, Utah.  He has now obtained the Presidential general election ballot in 3 states--which is 3 more states than Ralph Nader had obtained at this stage in 2008 on his way to appearing on the ballot in 45 states.

Rocky Anderson candidacy

I am happy and proud to see that Rocky Anderson will run under the Oregon Progressive Party. He is a true progressive and has a proven track record. I say ENOUGH of the Dems and Repubs.

Grateful, cautiously hopeful

This is awesome! My New Year's Resolution was to, "not vote for the lessor of two evils, again". Never vote scared! (Again)
