Rep. Cynthia Davis Responds to Chuck Baldwin at Constitution Party Convention

According to our man on the scene, Rep. Cynthia Davis of Missouri, who is running for Lt. Gov., just read a terse message that Chuck Baldwin sent her saying he didn’t think her campaign for Lt. Gov. was going to raise the money or put together the organization needed to win so he isn’t going to help.  She replied, “Really Chuck – do we give up before the fight? Well, not me! ” etc. (I’m not sure this is an exact quote.) Reportedly this drew a big round of applause.
Update: The accuracy of this characterization has been brought into question. It has been suggested that Baldwin was commenting on his own recently aborted Lt. Gov. race.

    Chuck Baldwin is now a Republican, so, IMO, his comments really have no bearing on Constitution Party activities. Chuck left the CP, so he has made his choice clear.

    I have to agree with #1 above. Seems to me like to good pastor has just stepped in doo-doo!

    Jeff–my understanding was that although Baldwin joined a GOP ticket, he recently told leadership he was “fully committed” to the CP. So, if he’s left–that’s a surprise to everyone.

    Very silly thing to say, though.

    Just recieved this news from VP candidate and Indiana state chairman Audrey Miller-Queckboerner: “he was not nominated by Phillips. Several state parties asked him to run. It wasn’t his intention to run. He apologized to Virgil and Robby for this. He just feels if delegates want him to run, he’s not going to tell them no. So we will see how it goes.”

    If this is Baldwin thoughts then why did he run for president in 08′ ? There was noway he could raise the money the duopolies would raise but he still ran.

    The quote attributed to Cynthia Davis about Chuck Baldwin is inaccurate. Dr. Baldwin dropped out of his Lt. Gov. race in the state of Montana due to a lack of funding. He made no comment at all regrading Cynthia Davis’s race. He wishes Cynthia all the best.

    Kristina, it is possible that my source misunderstood the context of Rep. Davis’ comment, but I do think she compared herself to Baldwin by saying she wasn’t dropping out, did she not?
