LINCOLN, Neb.-- A Lincoln man running on the "Tax Wall Street Party" ticket has submitted signatures to try to qualify for Nebraska's U.S. Senate race.

Dan Buhrdorf says he delivered nearly 5,700 signatures to the Nebraska secretary of state's office earlier this month. His party's platform includes support for a 1 percent tax on the sale of stocks, bonds and derivatives, and a proposal to nationalize the Federal Reserve.

If he qualifies, Buhrdorf would become the fifth candidate in the race. Republican Ben Sasse and Democrat Dave Domina are both running, as are independent cattle rancher Jim Jenkins and Lincoln businessman Todd Watson.

At least 4,000 signatures from registered voters are required to qualify for the ballot, with at least 750 of those signatures coming from each of Nebraska's three congressional districts.
