At 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 worked for equal rights, ending the wars, climate justice, and the impeachment of G.W. Bush during his 8 years as the boldly progressive Mayor of Salt Lake City. Due to corporate corruption of our government, Rocky left the Democratic Party and is running for President of the United States. He seeks places on state ballots by petitioning as a non-affiliated candidate and by obtaining nominations from non-major political parties.
His positions on issues closely match those of the Oregon Progressive Party.
