ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION PARTY:
The Constitution Party was founded in 1992, when a number of independent state parties united to form the U.S. Taxpayers Party. In 1999, the organization changed its name to the Constitution Party to better reflect its core beliefs. It has fielded candidates for president in every election since its founding: the 2012 presidential ticket was headed by former Virginia Congressman Virgil Goode. In 2014, the Constitution Party ran more than 150 candidates who earned over 1,440,000 votes. To learn more about the Constitution Party click here.
