Goode is now a member of the National Executive Committee of the Constitution Party. Goode served in Congress from January 3, 1997 to January 3, 2009.

Editorial Comment: Recently there had been some rumors that Goode was getting cold feet since things had been relatively silent from his camp. I wonder if the rumor of cold feet had anything to do with the timing of this release, or if this date has been planned for a while.
It appears that Goode is going to run a heavily populist campaign. I think the choice of Wall Street to announce is probably intended to have some symbolic meaning.
