4 thoughts on “McKinney and Nader to run for President on two parties

  1. Uh… why? This happens all the time, especially in small town elections where there are more citizen formed groups.

    Several large names have run on multiple tickets at once, though. Just last cycle in 2006, Joseph Lieberman ran as both an Independant and a Democrat. He did so mainly to ensure that *IF* he lost the Dems ticket in the primary, he’d still be on the final balot.

  2. Actually, it’s called “fusion” some states permit more viable third parties (California and New York are the major states that have laws giving third parties more actual role in politics). Fusion is where a candidate can be a candidate of multiple parties.
