For several years now, former Congressman Steve Stockman has been mentioned in Constitution Party circles when discussing the 2016 Presidential election. However, this has largely been baseless speculation and fun discussions for activists, as opposed to anything based on first-hand knowledge of the party’s interest in Stockman or vice-versa.
I spoke to a couple of Constitution Party insiders, especially national leaders, who have confirmed that there is a great deal of interest in having Steve Stockman run for President in their nomination process. Numerous activists and would-be delegates also confirmed to me that they would be interested in him serving as the party’s standard bearer. When I asked a certain long-time leader in the party leader if there was a serious effort to draft Stockman, he said, “stay tuned.” In the last couple of days, a Facebook page popped up called Steve Stockman for President, with a stated aim of drafting the former Congressman to run for President.
