Nader Endorses Howie Hawkins For Senate

Ralph Nader was in Albany today to endorse the Green Party's candidate for the U.S. Senate - Howie Hawkins.

Nader, who said he may run again for president in '08 called incumbent Sen. Hillary Clinton a "pro- corporate" Democrat.

Nader, like Hawkins, is calling for an immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq.

Another anti-war activist, and former Democratic candidate for Senate, Jonathan Tasini is not getting behind the Hawkins effort.

Tasini, you'll recall, has been polling supporters on his blog about what to do this November, and many have suggested Tasini back Hawkins. But Tasini today told Capitol Confidential he wont be supporting Hawkins, nor will he support Clinton.
