Nader unsure of a 2012 run for President

Omaha, NE – Former Presidential candidate Ralph Nader says he isn't sure if he'll run again in 2012.

Nader has run for President several times, most recently in 2008. He was on the ballot in 45 states, including Nebraska and Iowa. The Nader-Gonzalez campaign got just over 730,000 votes in the 2008 election.

Nader says it's too early to tell if he'll run again in 2012. But he hopes the Progressive Agenda will be represented on the 2012 ballot in the form of Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates. Nader says Democrats and Republicans are offering voters increasingly fewer choices.

His comments came during a visit to Omaha Tuesday.
