The Constitution Party held its spring national committee meeting in Baltimore, Maryland on April 20th. Virgil Goode, former U.S. Congressman and 2012 CP presidential nominee was the keynote speaker at the luncheon. Here are the 3 main highlights from the meeting:
1. The “Young Constitutionalists” organization, the youth arm of the Constitution Party headed by Joshua Fauver, was dissolved.
2. A resolution was passed stating that it was not “in the best interests of the CP to join or have any ties to the Clarion Call to Unite Comittee” effort and “not being affiliated with or supportive of the CCTUC.” The CCTUC is an organization headed by Nevada CP activist Cody Quirk which aims to unite all constitutionalist and right-wing minor political parties under one banner.
Both of the above actions are to be formally announced by the national chairman Frank Fluckiger soon.
3. Darrell Castle, the Constitution Party’s 2008 vice-presidential candidate, announced he is interested in seeking the CP’s presidential nomination in 2016, but that nothing is yet set in stone. (Here is a draft page on Facebook for that effort: https://www.facebook.com/DarrellCastle2016).
The Spring 2015 national committee meeting will be held in Oklahoma City (Fall, 2014 meeting will be in Denver – September – date TBD).
Also, according to Vice-Chairman Randy Stufflebeam, there will be a resolution proposed to change the bylaws to allow that in the off election years, there will only be one national meeting.
