Despite winning a late endorsement from Ron Paul, Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin has not done particularly well tonight.
With 7% of the vote reporting in California, Alan Keyes on the American Independent Party ballot line has already captured over 10,000 votes. If those numbers hold up, Keyes might win well over 100,000 votes just in California. Added to the few thousand votes Keyes is winning from Florida and Colorado, it might be enough to give Baldwin a run for his money on the national level.
As we all know, Keyes was defeated for the Constitution Party’s nomination at their convention earlier this year. If Keyes somehow manages to outpoll nominee Baldwin with ballot access in just a few states, it will certainly super-charge his ego and fuel at least a couple more long shot bids for public office.
