Virginia Approves Candidate Virgil Goode's Standing On Ballot

Virginia's State Board of Elections asked for a review of Constitution Party candidate Virgil Goode, after the state GOP alleged irregularities in Goode's qualifying petitions.

Late this week, Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli said Goode, a conservative former U.S. Representative had enough valid signatures to qualify for the ballot.

Good has been a Democrat, an Independent and most recently a Republican during a 36-year career that spanned 12 years in Congress and 24 in the Virginia Senate.

He lost his U.S. House seat back in 2008 to one-term Democrat Tom Perriello. Analysts say Goode's inclusion on the ballot threatens to drain some votes from Republican Mitt Romney in Virginia, which is considered a crucial swing state.
