TIME Magazine Publicizes Constitution Party Presidential Campaign

TIME Magazine has this story about Virgil Goode and the Constitution Party. The story says Goode has collected 17,000 signatures in Virginia, but actually he has collected 19,000. The state requires 10,000. Thanks to both Frank Fluckiger and Rick Hasen for the link.

  1. I have nothing to base this on, but I think voters in Virginia might be looking to punish Romney for Super Tuesday.

  2. Will this be the main thing we remember from this campaign.

  3. God bless Virgil Goode! I disagree with almost everything he stands for, but I would not want to live in a country where Virgil Goode could not run for president.

    I too am glad Goode got on the ballot. Isn’t that the whole point of Ballot Access News?

    The constitution party has seen signifigant growth in several counties of Utah and Idaho. In Utah the Constitution party candidate came in third place in the 2008 presidential election and in Utah’s Millard County the party topped 5% in the same election. A couple of local offices in Utah have been won by constitution party candidates as well.

  6. According to Virgil’s email tonight he’s at 20,000 signatures.

  7. It is the over 15,000 appr signatures of the Independent Green Party of Virginia that has been the key to getting Virgil Goode on the ballot in Virginia.

  8. Why is an apparently sane and decent guy like Goode engaging in this masochistic exercise?
