The Constitution Party selected their nominee for president in Nashville, Tennessee, Saturday.
Former Congressman Virgil Goode won the Presidential nomination of the Constitution Party on the first ballot. Winning 203 of 403 possible votes, the former Virginia Representative won on the first ballot with 50.37%. Two less votes would’ve required a second ballot.
"American voters who support limited, constitutional government, traditional American values, the protection of American jobs and preservation of individual liberty can take heart! They will not be limited to a difficult choice between Obama and Romney as the one likely to be the least threat to their life, liberty, property and other interests," said Jim Clymer, Constitution Party National Chairman, in a press release.
The candidates for the nomination included former Congressman Goode, who represented Virginia's 5th District from 1997-2009; Robby Carr Wells of North Carolina, a former NCAA Division 1 football coach at Savannah State University; Laurie Roth, of Washington, a talk show host and columnist; and Susan Ducey, a constitutional activist from Kansas.
