Thom Holmes has served on the Constitution Party National Executive Committee for a combined sixteen years and has held party leadership positions in Oklahoma and Texas. He chaired the 1999 committee that resulted in changing the party name to the Constitution Party. After earning an engineering degree from Oklahoma University, he began his forty year oil industry career.
Susan, his high school sweetheart and wife of 38 years, was named the 1993 Oklahoma Full-Time Homemaker of the Year by Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum. Susan and Thom were recruited to the Constitution Party in 1996 by Tulsa Eagle Forum leader, Joann Johnson, the sister of United States Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK).
The Holmes couple, along with Daniel New, led the successful 1996 Texas ballot access petition drive of 72,000 signatures for the Constitution Party in that state, collected in a 6-week effort.
Thom and Susan have 3 children, 2 grandchildren and have been a pioneering homeschool family since 1988. The Holmes family lives on his great-grandfather’s Centennial Family Farm in central Oklahoma.
