Correction, 3:55 p.m., 6/9/2011: Virgil Goode served in Congress for 12 years, not 14.
Virgil Goode’s played several roles during his political career: He’s been a state Senator. A
14 12-year U.S. Congressman. A Democrat. An independent. A Republican.
But now we hear, via Franklin County reporter Janelle Rucker, that Goode may be thinking about trying a new role: United States presidential candidate.
That’s what Chris Frasure is reporting, at least. The Libertarian blogger said he received a fundraising mailer from the Constitution Party that included the following paragraph:
The Constitution Party is gearing up for the presidential election year, and its 2012 ballot access campaign. Former Virginia Congressman, Virgil Goode, has expressed a strong interest in seeking the Constitution Party Presidential nomination in 2012 and at its meeting this past weekend, the Constitution Party National Committee unanimously passed a resolution inviting him to do just that.
Goode was appointed to the Constitution Party National Executive Committee last fall.
So what do you think? Would you vote for Goode for president?
