Coeur d’Alene, Idaho—The Constitution Party of Idaho (CP-Idaho) is pleased to announce that Mr. Darcy Richardson of Florida has declared his Idaho primary candidacy for President of the United States under the CP-Idaho banner. Richardson intends to run in the party’s March 10th presidential primary, which will be open to registered CP-Idaho voters and Idaho unaffiliated voters.
Mr. Richardson, 63, is an author, historian, blogger and political activist and has been an expert witness in recent ballot-access lawsuits in Georgia and Texas. In 2018, he ran for Governor of Florida under the Reform Party and placed third in a widely watched race decided by a mere 32,000 votes.
Mr. Richardson, invited to participate in the third quarter 2019 CP-Idaho State Central Committee conference call, stressed that the burgeoning federal debt, at over $22 trillion, and endless federal operating deficits are our nation’s greatest existential risks. A central plank in the Richardson 2020 campaign is paying down the federal debt. “It must be dealt with,” said Richardson.
Among other issues, resolving unrestrained and undocumented immigration will be “a big component” of his campaign. “We are being overrun,” Richardson told members of the CP-Idaho Central Committee during the call.
Richardson conveyed a personal loss of an immediate family member by an immigrant in a hit-and-run accident. Because the driver — a recent immigrant from Laos — didn’t speak English, he was never prosecuted. Richardson believes legal rulings must return to practical sense or justice will be unattainable by American citizens.
