This week Jerry Kilgore's office overturned a decision that kept the independent candidate's name off the state ballot.
Democrats say the reversal is part of a nationwide effort by Republicans to assist Nader's campaign to the detriment of Senator John Kerry's.
Kilgore's office says it was simply following the policies adopted by the state board of elections.
