The Green Party held its presidential convention in Milwaukee on Saturday. The result, delegates decided to choose David Cobb over Ralph Nader, the party's candidate in the 2000 election. David Cobb had recently chosen the politician Peter Camejo as his running mate, but the Green Party decided to nominate Pat LaMarche instead. Nader still has the endorsement of the Reform Party and received praise from the Green Party Presidential nominee.

Source CNN:

In choosing Cobb, the Greens picked a candidate who spent the last eight years visiting 40 states, working at the grass-roots level to build ties between environmental and labor movements.

Last election, Nader was able to receive 2.7% of the popular vote, with a total of 2,883,000 votes. With Nader losing the Green Party nomination, he will have to run as an independent and lose the vote of many, strong Green Party supporters. He may not even make it on the ballot in some of the 22 states, which had granted a Green Party ballot place due to Nader's performance in 2000. Cobb has not been represented as much in main-stream media and will rely mostly on the 500,000 strong Green Party and through his grassroots campaign.

The Green Party's decision could ultimately turn the tide of the 2004 election, in which Nader has been seen as a major threat to the Democratic Presidential Nominee, John Kerry.
