  1. At least it’s a step in the right direction. With Romney a lock to win the state, hopefully the Board will honor the decision of the Reform Party.

  2. Was not the Constitution Party already on the ballot with Virgil Goode as its presidential nominee?

  3. So first they defy the national party and nominate a preacher who has no interest in running. Then they meet and offer the ballot line to Ron Paul who has no interest. Then they meet and offer it to Virgil Goode.

    All while snubbing the national convention nominated Reform Party candidate? These guys are nuts.

  4. As far as I know, this branch of the RP is with the Pat Buchanan wing and they joined in with the CP

    As far as I can tell, this branch of the RP is with the Pat Buchanan wing. Rather than stay with the national RP, they joined up with the CP. That was about 10 years ago.

  5. They never disaffiliated from the national Reform Party though, so legally they are stil bound by the national rules and such.

  6. Would this be the Goode/Clymer ticket or do they have a different vice presidential nominee?

  8. “A few days ago, the Kansas Reform Party state committee met via conference call and revised its presidential nominee from Chuck Baldwin (who doesn’t really want to run for President) to Virgil Goode.”

    Why did the Reform Party of Kansas bother nominating Chuck Baldwin for President in 2012 in the first place when Chuck Baldwin did not even run this time, and did not even want the nomination? Chuck’s a good guy, but it’s not like he’s a celebrity or anything, so getting publicity can’t be the reason that they nominated him. It seems to me that they should have nominated somebody who at least wanted the nomination the first time.
