In our home state of Ohio, third party candidates must register as a write-in candidate with the State before being allowed to be voted for as presidential candidates. (Kind of defeats the purpose of a write-in, doesn’t it?) Ron Paul, who was running under the Republican Party, is not on that list.
But in the state of Montana, Ron Paul is on the ballot as a third-party candidate under the Constitution Party – and Ron Paul Revolution signs still abound. In fact, on Highway 93, there are almost more Ron Paul signs than those for his Republican opponent, John McCain. And in the polls, Paul is still drawing 4% in MT.
Supporters say Paul could draw as much as 8 to 10 percent of the vote there. It’s a wild card…and we love it!
