New Issue of Constitution Party’s News at a Glance Now Available

Dear Constitution Party Friends and Supporters,

The 4th issue of the Constitution Party’s News at a Glance has just come out, and can read it by clicking here. This issue covers Constitution Party Presidential Candidate Virgil Goode on immigration, and his travel schedule, as well as my From the Chairman article.

Ballot Access is in progress in many states. New Jersey, Arkansas, Alabama, Iowa, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington in particular need your help collecting signatures. Some people are able to give a lot of time, and others just a little, but any amount of help you can give will lighten the load and and help qualify our candidates for the ballot. Please contact your state chairman here.

I wish you and yours a happy and safe 4th of July celebration.

Sincerely,
Frank Fluckiger
National Chairman

    Is it just me, or is the Constitution Party suddenly more active? Do they have any paid staff members?

    I think Red (and others to some extent) have just been covering them here more often than we used to.

    As far as paid staff, I’m not sure how current my info is, but I think Gary Odom and maybe one or two other people were (part time?) paid staff of the national office.

    Virgil Goode seems to think he can do petitions for less than current market rates, and that volunteers will do a lot more than in the past. Many past candidates have reinvented the flat tire using that theory. I hope it works out for him though.

    There are no longer any paid staff at the national office, as far as I know.

    I don’t have numbers, but it doesnt seem like petitioning is going all that well for the CP. I hope i’m wrong.

    @ 4 I looked at the website and to be perfectly honest, talk is cheap, especially on the part of volunteers. Yes, it looks great and would be inspiring to anyone who is considering volunteering but the fact is, talk is very, very cheap and unfortunatly, the CP isn’t that strong as compared to the Libertarian Party or the Green Party. If they could hire a great Executive Director and have a cooperative leadership, the CP could be turned into a real threat. Until then, they are sliding toward becoming a minor party on the National level.

    @6 I agree. Maybe Richard Winger to tell us if their registration numbers are up or down

    I am of the opinion, as an outsider looking in, that the CP is not as strong as it once was. The national party appears to barely be holding on to FEC Big 5 status.

  7. Reed Ebarb

    If the CP falls, what happens to the supporters? Where do they defect to?

  8. JD

    My guess would be a new version of the AIP if that actually happens. There are many smaller right wing parties as well.
