This story gives an account of Virgil Goode’s campaign trip to New Mexico and Arizona, including a meeting with Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Arpaio and Goode are both known for emphasis on the issue of illegal immigration. Arpaio is also famous this year for investigating the validity of President Obama’s full-form birth certificate, his social security card, and his selective service registration card.
Goode, the Constitution Party nominee, is on the ballot in New Mexico, but not on in Arizona. Arizona is one of only five states in which the Constitution Party has never been able to get its presidential nominee on the ballot. The others are Indiana, Oklahoma, North Carolina, and Georgia.
