On June 23, the Independent Party, which is a ballot-qualified party in New Mexico, held a state convention and nominated Rocky Anderson for President. Anderson is also the nominee of the Justice Party, but the Justice Party is not on the ballot in New Mexico.
The Independent Party is ballot-qualified because in 2008, it polled over one-half of 1% of the vote for its presidential nominee, Ralph Nader. Nader polled .64% in 2008 in New Mexico. Thanks to Bill Van Allen for this news.
