Constitution Party / Independent American Party growth

The Constitution Party as well as its state affiliate, the Independent American Party of Nevada, has performed better in 2008 than it did in 2004 and 2000 on its presidential ticket.

While I wish Chuck Baldwin would have done better than he did, I am impressed that, with his limited resources, he has more than doubled his showing in Clark County and the state of Nevada, and has done better nationwide than the party did in 2004.

While I do not agree with him on just about anything, I would like to congratulate President-Elect Barack Obama on his victory tonight.
