Having lost the Constitution Party nomination for President on the first ballot, securing only a handful of votes, Laurie Roth is still giving thought to continuing her campaign for the Presidency of the United States.
She said she felt called by God to run, and she sought the nomination partly because it’s difficult for an independent to meet different laws in the 50 states to make the ballot. She thought the Constitution Party was a good fit for her views on fiscal accountability, a new tax system to replace the federal income and all other taxes, and strong support of the military.
Now she’s contemplating a return to her original idea of an independent campaign. By mid-June, she’ll know whether she can gather enough support from tea party organizations and other patriot groups around the country to help gather signatures.
“If you think outside the box, there are ways to explore ballot access,” she said.
Roth received 1 delegate vote from Maryland and 5 from Michigan, reportedly receiving the support from two delegates.
