PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE RALPH NADER ENDORSES
MICHAEL CAVLAN FOR CONGRESS
NATION’S FOREMOST PROPONENT FOR POLITICAL CHANGE SAYS VOTERS SHOULD DEMAND THAT CAVLAN BE INCLUDED IN
DEBATES WITH THE TWO CORPORATE OWNED CANDIDATES
Minneapolis — The Michael Cavlan for Congress Campaign is extremely happy to announce that consumer advocate and four-time Independent Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader has endorsed Independent Congressional Candidate Michael Cavlan for House of Representatives in Minnesota 5th District.
Mr. Nader contacted the campaign writing:
“Michael Cavlan — so knowledgeable, so perceptive, so committed to a deliberative democracy is the Congressional candidate to support in the 5th district if you want “people” and “justice” to have a chance. Demand that Michael Cavlan participate in the debates with the other candidates. You’ll see for yourself that he is truly of, by, and for the people.”
Cavlan said, “We are deeply honored to have Ralph Nader give us such a powerful endorsement”. Cavlan has a history of being a hard-hitting, no holds barred champion of working men and women. He also said, “We are committed to living up to Ralph Nader’s endorsement, his words will be a source of inspiration to all of us working to improve conditions, not only in the 5th district but also in the entire nation.”
Ralph Nader has stated, “There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the Democrats and Republicans”. The people of Minnesota recognize that. During the Minnesota State Fair this year I spent time behind the counter in a booth. People who stopped by said they don’t want the choices they have before them in the November elections.70% of those people said they would vote for an independent candidate. All of those people recognize that the present two-party system of governance in this nation has failed the people of the United States and many of them have the courage to challenge it.
We now offer a challenge to all the candidates presently running for office, to debate the issues relevant to the people of the 5th District.
