Ah, Ralph, Lost another Chance To Put elChimpo Back in White House, eh?!?
COLUMBUS, Ohio (Reuters) - The Ohio Supreme Court on Friday rejected a move by Ralph Nader to get on the Ohio ballot, further reducing the chance that his third-party presidential candidacy will be a factor in the battleground state.
The court ruled 6 to 1 that Nader's backers waited too long to raise objections about the way nominating petitions were being processed. Objections to petitions designed to put Nader on the ballot in Ohio had left him short of the required number.
Nader issued a statement saying he planned to appeal the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court though it was not clear if that process could be completed before the Nov. 2 election.
