Keynoter: Virgil Goode Article

Virgil Goode on CSPAN
In the Fall 2012 Keynoter, Editor Michael Kelly writes about the electoral history of APIC member Vrigil Goode of Virginia. He is perhaps the most prominent office seeker and also member of our organization of the 21st century. As Kelly points out, "Goode has shown himself to be untrammeled by party obligation". He has been a Democrat, Republican, Independent and now running for President on the Constitution Party ticket.

While many of us have vastly differing opinions on politics, we can all agree that seeing members of our organization run for public office is really cool. It isn't easy these days to run for any office. Money both helps and hinders candidates across the political spectrum. In presidential campaigns money is key for candidates to get on the ballot and promote themselves.  Goode will be on the ballot in 22 states this November and be recognized as a write-in candidate in 14 more.

The Constitution Party was founded by Howard Phillips in 1991 as the U.S. Taxpayers Party and only became the Constitution Party in 1999. Since 1992, the party has fielded a Presidential ticket in every election. Provided are the vote totals from wikipedia. 

 Will the Goode lead the party past 200,000 votes in 2012? We'll have to wait until November to find out. For further reading check out the Spring 2000 issue for an interview with Goode. Here are some more Goode for President items I have found by doing a google search.
