Nader Campaign Holds Event in Madison, WisconsinAired November 1, 2000 - 1:37 p.m. ET
THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
LOU WATERS, CNN ANCHOR: It is time for us now to head to Madison, Wisconsin, the steps of the state capitol there, where the Green Party candidate Ralph Nader is about to be introduced -- is that correct? He's next.
Ralph Nader, who is a long-time consumer and public interest activist, as you know; a professional citizen, if you will, who ran for president in 1992 as a write-in candidate. Apparently they are not sticking to the order here.
(JOINED IN PROGRESS)
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: You know, Ralph Nader has been a role model for me for over 30 years.
I did my undergraduate degree at UW-Milwaukee. That is that other campus, and Ralph, in the early '70s, that is when he started the Public Interest Research Groups, and I was proud to be in one of those then, and I am very proud to be here to welcome him today.
I was born and I grew up in Dodgeville. And I know for sure that people in Dodgeville will not be voting for Al Gore. They will be voting for Ralph Nader and probably a few for Bush.
I lived on the east side of Milwaukee for about seven years, and I definitely know that the whole east side of Milwaukee will be voting for Ralph Nader.
I am somewhat of an itinerant. I lived in Wausau for 12 years. And many of those independent spirits up there, I know darn well that they will be voting for the best candidate and that is Ralph Nader.
For the past 10 years, I have lived in southern Wisconsin, and I know darn well that in Dane County and into Green County people are going to be voting for Ralph Nader, and we will get 20 or 30 percent at least and maybe more.
(CHEERING) Just to refresh you about the 79th Assembly District. It has a lot of interesting places, a slice of Middleton, Pittsburgh, Verona, Mount Varg (ph), Oregon, Bellville (ph), Vermont, Blue Mountains (ph), Springdale, Dunn, Perry, Montrose, York, Exeter, and Primrose, the birthplace of "Fighting" Bob La Follette.
WATERS: We got the program a little out of order here in Madison, Wisconsin. Ralph Nader is on the steps of the capital. He is about to speak. We are going to break away. Take a short commercial break. When we come back, we expect to hear from the Green Party candidate.
