Former Congressman Virgil Goode Qualifies for Va. Presidential Ballot

Virgil Goode Jr., a former congressman, is running as the nominee for the Constitution Party.

The Constitution Party's nominee for president, Virgil Goode Jr., a former congressman in Virginia's fifth congressional district, has qualified for placement on Virginia's presidential ballot, the Washington Post reported Tuesday.

The Republican party is contesting the decision by the Virginia State Board of Elections, the Post reported. In a swing state like Virginia, even a small percentage of votes going to a third party could change the final outcome. 

Goode served in the Virginia state senate for over two decades, and in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1997 to 2009, according to his biography on his website

The Constitution Party supports small government, takes a socially conservative stance on issues like guns and abortion, and opposes trade agreements like NAFTA.
