ATLANTA, GA - 07/12/2016 (FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) - The Constitution Party of Georgia (CPGA) collected 4,176 signatures in about eight weeks to have its candidates placed on the ballot for the Presidential election in November, but it may not be enough. Current Georgia law requires over 52,000 signatures and a recent federal ruling in a suit filed by the Green and Constitution parties reduced that to 7,500 over the standard six month petitioning period.Read more

CP-GA Picks Castle, Dr. Paul Broun for Presidential Ticket
ATLANTA, GA - The Constitution Party of Georgia (CP-GA) held its state convention on June 10th in McDonough. As expected, members selected Darrell Castle, the keynote speaker and Constitutional attorney from Tennessee, as its Presidential nominee.
In a surprise move the members also unanimously nominated Dr. Paul Broun, a native son and former U.S. Congressman, for the Vice-President slot. CP-GA Chairman Ricardo Davis explained: “Dr. Broun has one of the most impressive conservative track records of any Congressman who has ever served in Washington. The CP-GA’s mission is to elect individuals like him in all facets of civil government.”Read more
Is a political rebirth for former U.S. Rep. Paul Broun underway, this time as a third-party candidate? Maybe, from what we can tell.
Weeks after his Republican primary loss in the Ninth Congressional District, the tea party darling has resurfaced, this time as the vice presidential nominee for the Constitution Party of Georgia.
Word’s getting out now that the party made the surprise decision at its state convention in McDonough on June 10, choosing to dither from Utah university administrator Scott Bradley, who was selected as the VP pick at the national party’s convention in April.
The group highlighted Broun’s Capitol Hill track record on taxes, the debt ceiling and abortion in its announcement.
