A few days ago, a Constitution Party presidential debate took place, with presidential candidates J.R. Myers and Scott Copeland participating. On March 14th, a video of the debate was uploaded to YouTube. From the YouTube video description:
This debate occurred on March 8, 2016 via Skype. The debate features John Myers and Scott Copeland. Moderated by John Johnson. The debate was held using Skype at the Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative located in Humphreys County, Tennessee.
The video of the debate runs one hour and 8 minutes.
From the Idaho Constitution Party website, March 9th:
Well, it was an exciting night. It was also marred with a curious error coming out of Bingham County. Our Constitution Party candidate numbers were transposed, apparently, from the first three lines of the Republicans when the final two precincts reported from that county.
This had the effect of throwing over 130 votes to Mr. Myers incorrectly. And that, of course, could have turned the election. Upon an email notice to the Secretary of State’s overworked Elections Office late last night, regarding the obvious error, Betsie Kimbrough, State Elections Director, reviewed the Bingham results. Ms. Kimbrough deserves our compliments.
The Bingham County Clerk’s office did have the ballot numbers reported correctly on their county website. However, the data handoff up to the State somehow went awry. A correction was entered on the Unofficial Primary Night Results. And we thank Ms. Kimbrough for that due diligence.
This brings up an important note. The election reports being reported as they come in from the counties, are not yet official numbers. The report is a service, basically to news wires and interested voters. We will get Secretary Denney’s final certification on the ballots shortly. THOSE will be official.
That said, with 18 precincts yet to report, Scott Copeland held 51.7% of the Constitution Party Idaho Primary ballot. And therefore, he is the clear winner, especially since he holds the majority (versus a plurality).
To Mr. Copeland goes the state delegation’s eight (8) national delegates. Idaho’s delegation will be bound for Salt Lake City, as the Constitution Party National Convention begins April 15th, 2016 to decide the national nomination.
Mr. J.R. Myers came in second, with 28.9% of the primary ballot. Mr. Patrick Ockander placed third with 19.4%. All three candidates will be placed into nomination by the Idaho delegation at National Convention as a matter of courtesy and custom. This will ensure (assuming the Idaho nominations are properly seconded by another state’s delegation) that these candidates have podium time, as they ought.
Having invested time and treasure, the candidates should be permitted an address to the National Convention. This is generally considered as a matter of comity. We suggest that it is even a matter of strength of platform. As the platform is forged from diverse interests, it is wise to consider points of view from those candidates who have also earned significant votes from our fellow registered Constitution Party base–as have Mr. Myers and Mr. Ockander.
Anyhow, congratulations are due to all three candidates in this historical primary, and especially to Mr. Copeland the victor. It is our hope that our national party will move in the future toward the direction that CP-Idaho has trail-blazed. In order to grow and for the People to have confidence in the nomination process, that process must be opened to sunshine and water. That, after all is how a seedling grows. It is how it is nourished.
The results, from the Idaho Secretary of State:
|CONSTITUTION||Patrick Anthony Ockander||95||19.6%|

Myers, one of the two main candidates currently seeking the Constitution Party’s presidential nomination, which will be decided April 13th-16th in Salt Lake City, Utah. Today, Mr. Myers submitted his responses to us. The interview is below: Continue reading
Patrick Ockander drops out of Constitution Party presidential race, endorses J.R. Myers and Ted Cruz
J.R. Myers posted the following in an ATPR comment:
2/29/2016 P:atrick Ockander Drops out of CP POTUS race and endorses J.R. Myers:
“After much consideration, I have decided to step out of the CP race, and to rather put my support and my hat for VP in the ring with Ted Cruz, and I do this because his birthright is a moot point, that his dualistic nature is minimal, especially when compared with the Trump and rubio. I would hate to draw votes from Ted when the race is so close.
With that said, I’m offering my support within the CP to JR, who appears to hold my views most closely.
IF Ted Cruz doesn’t secure the RP nomination, I would consider the VP slot for JR.
GOD Bless America.
Ockander’s announcement leaves Scott Copeland and J.R. Myers as the two candidates actively campaigning for the Constitution Party’s presidential nomination, which will be decided April 13th-16th in Salt Lake City, Utah.
On February 27th, 2016, a presidential debate was held for the candidates seeking the Constitution Party’s nomination, which will be decided in April in Salt Lake City, Utah. The debate was hosted by the Consitution Party of Idaho in the state’s capitol city of Boise. Patrick Anthony Ockander, J.R. Myers and Scott Copeland participated. The three candidates will appear on the Idaho Constitution Party primary ballot on March 8th, the first time in the state’s history that the Constitution Party will have a contested presidential primary. A recording of the debate is available on Blog Talk Radio, and lasts about three hours.
