Virgil Goode was a Democrat, then a Independent, then a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives from 1997 to 2008. Goode is now a member of the Constitution party. Goode can influence the election by taking some of the conservative voters in Virginia (which is a battleground state) that could go to Mitt Romney. The Republican party wants Goode of the ballot and are challenging his eligibility, alleging petition fraud. Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II has the power to take Goode of the Virginia ballot.- Savannah
