Ralph Nader Endorses Christina Tobin, Candidate for California Secretary of State

Ralph Nader, 2008 Independent candidate for the U.S. presidency, recently gave his rare, yet not surprising, endorsement to Christina Tobin, Libertarian candidate for Secretary of State of California.

“Christina Tobin as Secretary of State of California will give more voices and choices to millions of California voters who think the “two-party dictatorship” is monopolizing the ballot line against third party and independent candidates,” Nader said.

“I’m so appreciative to Ralph Nader for his endorsement,” Tobin said. “I’ve always looked up to him because of his integrity and devotion to working for the people, not the corporations, and now, as a candidate, I have the opportunity to contribute to those candidates who I believe embody this sense of devotion as well.”

At the University of Connecticut, Storrs, Wednesday last week, at the end of the first leg of an all-inclusive debate tour sponsored by The Free and Equal Elections Foundation and student organizations of the host Universities, Christina Tobin, candidate for California Secretary of State, personally endorsed the participating candidates for U.S. Senate and governor of Connecticut.

Tobin, who supports proportional representation, didn’t stop in Connecticut. The next day, at the second and third debates of the tour, back-to-back U.S. Senate and gubernatorial debates at Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, Tobin again personally endorsed all the candidates who took the time to debate and put themselves directly in the fire of questions and concerns from voters in the audience.

Tobin says she also will publicly endorse all candidates who participate in the fourth and final debate of the tour, which will take place from 1 – 2:30 p.m., Thursday, October 28, in the Forest Suite, on the second floor of the University Union at California State University, Sacramento.

“I am endorsing these candidates because I believe they will all work tirelessly on behalf of their constituents – despite party affiliation – if elected and they do not shy away from aggressively, yet logically and responsibly, tackling the issues facing Americans today,” Tobin said.

Tobin’s endorsements can be found at www.tobinforca.org. By clicking on individual states on the large red map found at the top of the site, users are directed to an all-inclusive list of candidates for that state. Candidates that have received Tobin’s endorsement are highlighted with a yellow star.

Voters can find current up-to-date information on all candidates at both www.tobinforca.org and www.freeandequal.org. In the ongoing commitment to help voters around the nation make their voices heard, Free and Equal has launched an online petition demanding open, all-inclusive debates.
