Constitution Party, lacking funds, decides where it will fight

According to Ballot Access News, this is the triage system being utilized by the Constitution Party:

The Constitution Party has decided that it cannot afford to get on the ballot for president this year in Arizona, Connecticut, and New Hampshire. Maine is in doubt. However, the party still hopes to be on the ballot in 41 states. The other states that party doesn’t expect to be on are: Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Texas.

    I’ve also heard on the Grapevine, that Kansas looks “dicey” for them.

  2. NewFederalist Says:

    Unless the Reform Party of Kansas is denied the right to nominate Baldwin/Castle as their ticket I believe it is a done deal.

  3. Bill Lussenheide Says:

    The party is making a full national marketing effort, even in states where there is only write in capability.

    Current official ballot status as per CP website:

    What’s the latest on California?

    I admire a lot about the Constitution Party, despite being a Trotskyist, and hope that they get more votes than Nader and McKinney and Barr.

    I heard that since the former Concerned Citizens Party Chairman died, they have struggled to get signatures.

    The late Chair was the driving force for signature gathering in Conn. And with his absense, of course they are going to have a hard time.

    Nevertheless they are going to do ‘Write-in’ instead.

    In New Hampshire, the 2 Party leaders there are deeply tied to Michael Peroutka, so they’re not going to bother, period.
    And there’s very, VERY few CP activists in that state.

    Of course we’ll probably go for write-in status in New Hampshire too.

    if Maine fails, then ‘write-in’ is the best alternative.

    But still the CP is going to be on in more states then 2004, including Hawaii, Illinois and others.

    Eric Dondero: You are such a waste of bifocal space! An federal elector is equal to a federal elector! Baldwin’s run at the brass ring of the Sunflower States ( [9?] electorial votes) is just as good on the Constitution Party of Kansas ticket as it is SEPARATELY on the Reform Party of Kansas roll!

    You do know that the Baldwin Ticket is on the reform ballot? A book, a large book, could be published on your recent snafu[s]! I am still awaiting the Pope’s recommendation on you! Waiting, waiting, waiting…....Don Lake

    Seems sometimes as if though that allot of people are so quick to dismiss and write off Baldwin and Castle because of the “Theocracy” conspiracy theory rather than the Democracy theory winning out the day. I know in my own home state of Kentucky we are working extra extra hard to get Baldwin and Castle on the ballot here, but if for whatever reason they don’t get on the ballots that they seek the most there is always write-in!

    Will see what comes of it all, but I stand with Baldwin and Castle, period no exceptions!!
