Ralph Nader has brought his traveling campaign to open the Presidential Debates to third-party candidates to NYU’s neighbor college Cooper Union. On the night of the 3rd and final debate, Nader will host a rally in the Cooper Union’s Great Hall, calling for a debate system open to 3rd parties and independent candidates, followed by a Wall Street protest against the economic bailout on the 16th.

The ever controversial former consumer advocate will be on the ballot in 45 states this year – including in Florida, where many Democrats accuse him of spoiling the 2000 election for Al Gore and helping put George Bush into office. Although he split from the Green Party he helped found, Nader is running a nationally-visible but overmatched independent campaign with Matt Gonzales as his VP pick.

The final Presidential debate between Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama will take place in Hofstra University in Hempstead Long Island on October 15th at 9 pm Eastern time.
