From Gary Odom:
The National Committee of the Constitution Party, meeting in Harrisburg, PA, has, by unanimous resolution, adopted on April 30, 2011, put itself on record urging former Virginia Congressman, Virgil Goode, to seek the Presidential nomination of the Constitution Party!
Immediately upon conclusion of Virgil Goode’s speech; one in which he extolled the virtues of protecting America’s national sovereignty, condemned foreign aid and demanded the the United States start taking care of America’s problem first instead of meddling in the affairs of the rest of the world, providing a rousing climax to the 2011 Spring National Committee of the Constitution Party; a motion from the floor was made, urging Goode to seek the Constitution Party’s Presidential nomination. Th motion was quickly seconded and was passed unanimously by the party’s national committee.

This resolution should not be confused with a nomination (which can only be made by the national convention–the highest authority of the national party) nor even an outright endorsement, however it can certainly be viewed as a statement of deep appreciation for Virgil Goode’s activities in the Constitution Party over the past two years and may equally be viewed as a clear statement that the National Committee views Virgil Goode as an excellent choice to be the Constitution Party nominee for President of the United States and for that reason strongly encourages him to seek its nomination.
Goode has made it clear to members in private and public comments at the meeting and prior thereto that he has a strong interest in seeking the party’s nomination, though he has made no public announcement to that effect as of yet. Many Constitution Party leaders are hopeful that Goode has a strong campaign well underway by the time of the Constitution Party National Convention in mid-April of 2012, and it was hoped that this resolution would encourage him to take the steps necessary to become a full fledged candidate.
