*****   Nader Campaign Says It Qualifies for Funds

WASHINGTON (AP) - Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader 
raised about $600,000 in the two months since he announced his 
candidacy, enough money to qualify for federal matching funds and 
well ahead of the fund-raising pace he set four years ago, his 
campaign announced Wednesday.

In papers filed with Federal Election Commission, Nader said roughly 
60 percent of that amount had been donated over the Internet.

To receive matching funds, a candidate must raise at least $5,000 in 
20 states in donations of $250 or less. Nader has collected more than 
$5,000 from 23 different states. About 91 percent of his donations 
have been under $100. . . .

Campaign spokesman Kevin Zeese said Nader was able to make the 
request for matching funds two months earlier than he did in 2000, 
when he announced his candidacy at about the same time. Nader had 
raised only $198,000 by this time four years ago.

``We're doing better than last time despite the fear of the liberal 
intelligentsia,'' Zeese said. ``And we're starting to establish 
ourselves as the only clear anti-war campaign.'' . . .
