Constitution Party Nominates Doug Enyart for Congressional Seat
~ There IS Another Choice ~

U.S. Marine and professional forester, Doug Enyart, was elected from a pool of candidates to campaign for the 8th Congressional District seat vacated by Joann Emerson.

Pointing to his status as a member of the Constitution Party and a small business owner/consultant specializing in private property, forest, wildlife and land management, Enyart says, “Small businesses, which generate the majority of new jobs, cannot thrive and grow in the current climate of over regulation and instablility. They don’t know what’s going to hit them next. I’m going to work on that when I’m elected.”
As a candidate for the Constitution Party, Enyart hopes to attract the support of hard working, patriotic citizens, many who are unemployed/underemployed, and who are tired of the partisan bickering and gridlock that defines the two-party system that dominates our central government. Missouri has a unique opportunity to lead the nation to a freer, more prosperous future.
Doug and his wife, Cheryl, reside in Piedmont and are members of Trinity United Methodist Church. Doug served 3 terms as President of Trinity United Methodist Men; is a Rotary International Paul Harris Fellow, and he is a graduate of Humboldt State University. Fifteen years ago, he launched his business, Clearwater Forest Consultants, LLC.
People need a representative who will work tirelessly on their behalf to uphold constitutional principles and vote to reign in taxes and the out-of-control debt facing this country.
Doug Enyart is available for phone interviews by the news media and is available for in-studio interviews or on camera appearances upon request.

    This is a big deal for them. In years past it has been hard for them to recruit. We’ll see how he handles the media and public speaking. The CP of Missouri is getting better.

    I don’t think Bill Slantz has been to Jeff city yet to register as a candidate yet. I know both D and R have.

    Good Luck.

    Given his profession I wonder if the Greens might find his candidacy attractive? I don’t remember reading that a Green has filed.

    Lol….I can see the Greens supporting a LP candidate, but the CP and GP have too many differences for any real collaboration tot take place.

    I wish the CP here in Illinois were stronger… I don’t think we’ve ever had a CP candidate on a ballot for a congressional race in this state. In 2012 the party here only had ONE candidate on the ballot out of all the races…it was a state representative candidate downstate. I wish the Illinois CP were as strong as the Missouri party is.

    You might be surprised, young one. Take NOTHING for granted.

    #5, the Constitution Party of Illinois ought to be looking for a state legislator to introduce a ballot access improvement bill. Actually there is a bill in the legislature now to lower the number of signatures, but it only affects independent candidates, not the nominees of unqualified parties. It is HB 1269 by Rep. Mike Fortner. It would set the statewide offices at 5,000 and US House at one-half of 1%, and State Senator 1,000, and State House 500.

    To Lesiak
    I think in Arkansas a Green candidate was Pro-Life, and it is possible because some CP and Greens are for peace not war. Other issues they don’t have much in common. I do agree with you if the CP didn’t have a candidate in this special election, (with such a conservative tilt), they might as well put a “out of business sign”. I hope the LP candidate gets more votes than the D’s choice. It will be tough to beat the R’s but you have to try every time.
    -The Greens should also put up a candidate – If they can do it in ARKANSAS they can do it in Missouri.

    Not all parties have candidates willing to run in every race. That doesn’t mean they should go out of business. For one reason or another some parties are stronger in some states than others. Which states changes in different years.

  9. johnO

    Your right paulie. The Progressive Party and Liberty Union are strong in Vermont but are not viable/strong in NH, MA , ME, CT etc. Each state has it’s own vibe , as does each district, town etc etc.

  10. johnO

    Yes you are correct paulie again. The R’s are very strong in Utah while D’s have control in MA for example.
