The AJC’s Tamar Hallerman is reporting that Paul Broun is the Vice-President choice of Georgia Constitution Party.

Of course there are a few hurdles to overcome like #1 getting Broun to accept.

Favorito said Broun did not run or campaign for the position, nor did he attend the party’s convention:

“He knows us and we know him but he was totally unaware that we would do this.”

Second hurdle might be enough signatures to get on the Georgia ballot:

Under a recent court decision (which Georgia has appealed), they must collect 7,500 signatures in order to do so. That’s a tall order since that number is higher than the party’s list of members in Georgia, according to Favorito.

Third challenge:

Should they make it onto the ballot, the party wants to win 2 percent of the vote for president so that its candidates can qualify for statewide office in subsequent elections, as Georgia’s Libertarian Party is currently able to do.

Another consideration might be 22% of the vote in the 9th District primary.

“Curiouser and curiouser” Alice exclaimed.
