Nader plans Denver rally

DENVER ” Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader is staging a rally in Denver as Barack Obama prepares to accept the Democratic nomination.

Nader speaks at a University of Denver rally on Wednesday night. Actors Val Kilmer and Sean Penn are also on the bill.

The event comes one day before Obama’s acceptance speech.

The Democratic convention has attracted plenty of non-Democrats in search of attention. Independent Alan Keyes and Green Party candidate Cynthia McKinney have been in town. Anti-immigration activists hoped Libertarian Bob Barr would attend their rally, though Barr didn’t show.

Nader’s campaign says he hopes to attract a few thousand to his speech. He has a similar rally planned for St. Paul next week at the Republican convention.
