Via Polidoc Productions

The State Convention for Peace and Freedom Party will convene on Saturday, August 2 and 3 at the Hawthorn Suites, 321 Bercut Drive, Sacramento California. At the convention Brian Moore, Gloria La Riva, Ralph Nader, and Cynthia McKinney will be seeking the Peace and Freedom Party’s presidential nomination. A debate among the four presidential candidates will be at the same location on Friday, August 1 at 7 p.m.

All of the candidates mentioned above are already on the ballot in other states, but Cynthia McKinney is the only one already on the ballot in California, the only state where Peace and Freedom is a ballot qualified party.

    Also, Nader could be in danger if LaRiva or McKinney use his comments on race against him.

    This should be an exciting one. Ballot-Access news reported that Nader probably has a slight lead in terms of delegates but that could diminish as the second and third ballots come to a close. LaRiva could still win depending on where Moore and McKinney’s delegates go.

    P2004: and even his own folks gave up on his write in electors after they blew it big time on the botched ballot access! Only last minute efforts by an unrelated good citizens group saved the 20K votes.

    What will it cost Nader if he loses?

    Probably at least 200,000 votes. Maybe a little more.

    He got 240k in 1996 and 420k in 2000 and then only 20k as a write-in in 2004.

    I don’t see Nader getting on in CA otherwise.

    He’d need 158,372 valid by Aug. 8. Good luck with that.

    That is to say, a ballot line here. My understanding is that they’re collecting sigs, but they might be counting on the PFP again.

    California, most likely.

    Does anyone know whether the debate will be on CSPAN? Or will it be streamed online?
