Constitution Party of Georgia Nominates Darrell Castle, Dr. Paul Broun for Presidential Ticket

IPR: Below is a press release from the Constitution Party of Georgia:

ATLANTA, GA – The Constitution Party of Georgia (CP-GA) held its state convention on June 10thin McDonough. As expected, members selected Darrell Castle, the keynote speaker and Constitutional attorney from Tennessee, as its Presidential nominee.

In a surprise move the members also unanimously nominated Dr. Paul Broun, a native son and former U.S. Congressman, for the Vice-President slot. CP-GA Chairman Ricardo Davis explained: “Dr. Broun has one of the most impressive conservative track records of any Congressman who has ever served in Washington. The CP-GA’s mission is to elect individuals like him in all facets of civil government.”

Dr. Broun wrote a Jobs Act that was highly rated by the Club for Growth, an Audit the Fed bill that passed the U.S. House by a 333-92 margin, and legislation considered to be the best Obamacare alternative. Dr. Broun never voted for a tax increase, never voted to increase the debt ceiling and never voted for a bailout. He also proposed more targeted spending cuts than any other U.S. Representative.

Davis noted, “With the recent endorsement of Darrell Castle by Georgia Right to Life PAC, the Constitution Party of Georgia has the only ticket with endorsed president and vice-president candidates.  Castle and Broun have proven track records in defending the sanctity of life.”

The CP-GA is attempting to get Mr. Castle and Dr. Broun on the ballot in November by collecting 7,500 petition signatures according to a new interim federal ruling. Though still high, that number is a dramatic reduction from current Georgia law requiring about 52,000 signatures.  Voters wanting to see them on the ballot are working to meet the approaching deadline.

    I intended to go to the convention and cover it for IPR, but it was moved from a Sat to a Friday so I couldn’t make it.

    Why isn’t this party doing better in Utah? Gary Johnson is polling close to 12%. Plus, all three Trump, Clinton and Johnson are more socially liberal than CP. Utah doesn’t seem to be socially liberal.

    Guess I was thinking more of Abortion, Prostitution, and how the top two have “elastic” views of marriage. I do see your point of polygamy with LP . Thank You NBC. Just thought CP would be doing better in polling with Trump and Clinton in particular.

    Johno,

    Have you seen any polls at all that included the CP? Will they be on the ballot in Utah? These are deep divisions between southern Christian Conservatives and the LDS.

    No, I haven’t seen polls with CP. I do believe, as well as LP, that CP is on ballot in Utah. Both have had candidates for several years there. I think if Gary Johnson can catch Clinton and Trump (both at 32%) in Utah he gets electoral votes! What is Utah 2 for senate and 4 for the congress? The polls i read were from the Salt Lake Tribune a few days ago. Johnson could break through in that state because the fine people of Utah are disgusted with Trump and Clinton. So, if LP wins Utah WOW. I didn’t know the internal divisions of CP of Utah and the deep south. Thank You.

    The Utah Constitution Party is ballot-qualified because it regularly gets more than 2% for a statewide office. In 2014 the only statewide office was Attorney General and the Constitution Party got 3.32%. In 2012 it got 3.17% for US Senate and 5.21% for Auditor. The vote test only needs to be met once every four years.

    Is this party affiliated with the national Constitution Party? The national party nominated a ticket for President and Vice President. What is it with these state Constitution Parties nominating their own presidential tickets?

    It is ridiculous that there are so many small conservative parties. It is a bunch of people who don’t play well with others. It is not about beliefs, but wanting to be be a big fish in a small pond. I remember dabbling in the Reform Party (it was after the 2000 collapse) and found that when people didn’t get their way, they left or threatened to leave. The mentality really needs to change if any third party wants to be a contender.

    “These are deep divisions between southern Christian Conservatives and the LDS.”

    And judging by the actions of the GA-CP at their state convention, that’s an understatement; Georgia Constitutionists (that’s what most of them like to call themselves) obviously do not want a Mormon on their state party’s ballot… Wonder how the national CP is going to respond to this.

    “It is ridiculous that there are so many small conservative parties. It is a bunch of people who don’t play well with others.”

    You nailed it; it’s pretty much why a minor party on the right side of the spectrum will never have a powerful showing or a serious influence in national elections… Unless the GOP actually splits up into 2 or 3 parties.

    I tried to fight this long-established fact and bring many of these parties & individuals together as a United front -only for it to blow up in my face and be an actual waste of my time.
