Third-Party Presidential Candidate Goode Makes Virginia Ballot

September 4, 2012

Could Virgil Goode Jr. be Mitt Romney’s Ralph Nader?

The former Virginia congressman qualified for the presidential ballot in Virginia on Tuesday, The Washington Post reported.

The state Republican Party is challenging his eligibility, and he could still get thrown off the ballot. But if he stays on, Goode, as nominee for the Constitution Party, could siphon off votes from Romney in what is proving to be a close race.

 

Goode, a Democrat-turned-independent-turned-Republican, lost his seat in southwest Virginia in 2008.

In 2000, votes for Green Party candidate Ralph Nader helped George W. Bush win Florida. In a twist, Goode got significant help from the state’s Green Party in collecting signatures. He supports the party’s top issue of more spending for passenger rail but also supports curbs to both illegal and legal immigration. He opposes abortion and free-trade agreements.
