The state Republican Party is challenging Goodeâs eligibility, alleging petition fraud, and the Constitution Partyâs nominee still could be knocked off the ballot. Goode served in Congress as a Democrat, an Independent and then a Republican before losing his southwest Virginia seat in 2008, and could siphon votes from Romney . Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein also made the ballot on Tuesday. Third-party hopefuls rarely garner many votes in Virginia, but Goodeâs status as a longtime officeholder â he spent 12 years in Congress and 24 years in the state Senate before that â could bring him more support than usual. Just 2 or 3 percent of the vote going to Goode could be enough to swing the contest.
