Michael Peroutka, the Constitution Party’s presidential nominee in 2004, has filed in the Republican primary to run for Anne Arundel County Council, district five. Peroutka lives in Pasadena, Maryland.
David Whitney, a Constitution Party’s nominee for Maryland House of Delegates in 2006, has filed to run for the same office, and in the same district, but he filed in the Democratic primary. Whitney lives in Annapolis. In 2006, when he ran for the Maryland legislature as a Constitution Party nominee, he got 5.1% of the vote in a race that had both major parties also running.
The Constitution Party was not on the Maryland ballot in 2012. It is still free to get on the ballot in 2014, but that would require 10,000 valid signatures by August 4.
