5 presidential candidates on ND ballot

BISMARCK — North Dakota's presidential ballot will have three other candidates besides Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney.

Secretary of State Al Jaeger says the Libertarian, Green and Constitution parties have also qualified their candidates for the ballot.

Former New Mexico Republican Gov. Gary Johnson is the Libertarians' presidential candidate. The conservative Constitution Party is running former Virginia congressman Virgil Goode Jr. for president. Goode was elected to the U.S. House as a Democrat, an independent and a Republican.

The liberal Green Party presidential candidate is Jill Stein, who is a Massachusetts doctor and environmental health advocate.

The Libertarians have two other North Dakota candidates. Eric Olson of Fargo is running for the House, and Joshua Voytek of Fargo is seeking a seat on the Public Service Commission.
