Consumer advocate Ralph Nader, whose participation in the 2000 race was widely believed by Democrats to have influenced the outcome of the race in Florida which determined who got to go into the White House, ran in 1992 a write-in campaign during the New Hampshire primary for the presidential nomination of both the Democratic and Republican parties. Declaring himself the "none of the above candidate" and using the Concord Principles as his platform, Nader received 3,054 votes from Democrats and 3,258 votes from Republicans.
