This just in from my man on the inside at the Constitution Party Convention. Darrell Castle of Tennessee will be seeking the Constitution Party Presidential Nomination. This is a surprise, but a VERY positive development in my opinion. Castle was generally considered the fallback candidate if a “big name” didn’t get in. Once Goode declared, discussion of Castle faded. I had assumed that Castle was on board with Goode as most of the party leadership seemed to be on board with Goode.
Castle is not a “big name,” but I can comfortably support him. He represents what I have previously called, and bemoaned that none was available, the “modal” CP candidate.
Update: I apparently misread my source’s email. Howard Phillips DID NOT speak on behalf of Castle. Phillips spoke on behalf of Goode. (You could call it pronoun confusion.) Castle said in his speech that he was approached by several delegates about running.
