A 2008 candidate for the Republican nomination, Representative Ron Paul (R-Texas), endorsed several third party candidates shortly after bowing out of the race. Ultimately, he would go on to endorse 2008 Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin. The unaffiliated Constitution Party of Montana replaced Baldwin with Paul for President and Michael Peroutka for Vice President. Paul requested that Montana remove his name from the ballot, but the Secretary of State of Montana denied his request, stating that the request was sent too late.
Former Republican Congressman from Virginia Virgil Goode was nominated for President at the 2012 Constitution Party
convention in Nashville, Tennessee. Goode received 203 votes, one more than required. Darrell Castle
of Tennessee, National Vice Chairman of the Constitution Party, came in second with 120 votes.
