In response to questions raised regarding the search for a third party to field candidates from the Republican Party, Constitution Party National Chairman Frank Fluckiger issued the following statement:
“The Constitution Party national convention has been held, and our candidates have been selected. There is no provision in our bylaws of which I am aware that would permit us to do anything but move forward as we now are doing. To even consider another choice at this point would create nothing less than confusion and only hinder our progress. We would have to circulate petitions anew in some states. As important and as appealing a candidate might be, if we forget that it is our message of liberty first and foremost that resonates in the hearts of our supporters, we will in due time just become another political party.”
All Americans who hold to the idea of a constitutionally limited government, who believe in the sanctity of life and the traditional family, and who can agree with the principles found in our platform are welcome in the Constitution Party as it moves forward in this election year. Many such Americans have already joined our effort to elect a president who is committed to such ideals in the person of Darrell Castle, and our doors are open to all who will come.
