Mark Clayton is the U.S. Senate nominee of the Democratic Party in Tennessee. He recently stated that in 2008 he did not vote for Barack Obama. Nor did he vote for Republican nominee John McCain. Instead, he voted for the nominee of the Constitution Party, Chuck Baldwin.
Mark Clayton, the Democratic Party’s unconventional, disavowed candidate for the U.S. Senate, didn’t push the button for party nominee Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election. He said he voted for Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin, a personal friend from his days in Pensacola, Fla.
“I used to go to his church,” Clayton said at a news conference last week. “If you have a friend that’s running for president and you like them and you agree with a lot of the things that he says … I did that as a supportive friend.”
The Democratic Party has specifically disavowed Mark Clayton. Chuck Baldwin has recently been active as a Lt. Governor candidate in Montana as a Republican, but still purports to be a Constitution Party member too.
