IPR has been contacted by a number of top Constitution Party activists and leaders over the last couple of weeks who claim to have inside knowledge of the presidential aspirations of several would-be candidates, amongst them several former members of Congress.
Former Congressmen Tom Tancredo and Virgil Goode are considered to be the frontrunners for the nomination if they want it. Virgil Goode joined the Constitution Party in 2010, though he emphasized he did not leave the Republican Party. Tom Tancredo joined the Constitution Party in 2010 too and ran for Governor of Colorado under that banner–he later rejoined the Republican Party, in what he said was a pre-arranged agreement with the Constitution Party.
Other rumored candidates for the presidential nomination include: former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, former Congressman John Hostettler, former Senator Bob Smith, 2008 Vice Presidential nominee Darrell Castle, New York Times Bestselling Author Jerome Corsi, and former Constitution Party Communications Director Mary Starrett.
It should be noted that Tancredo, Moore, and Smith are amongst a set of candidates who are routinely floated amongst the Constitution Party’s activist base.
