Randall C. Stufflebeam (born May 27, 1960) was a write-in[citation needed] candidate in the 2006 Illinois gubernatorial election against Democratic incumbent Rod Blagojevich Republican Judy Baar Topinka, and Green Rich Whitney.[1] His running mate was Randy White. He is also state chairman of Illinois' Constitution Party and is a former Marine. Stufflebeam received 19,020 votes (0.55%) in his write-in bid for the Governor's office. This is the largest write-in vote total in Illinois history.[citation needed]

In June 2007 Stufflebeam announced that he was running for Illinois State Representative in the 114th District.[2] Despite Stufflebeam's announcement he did not run in the 2008 election.[citation needed]

He filed as a candidate for U.S. Senator from Illinois in 2010, but the Illinois State Board of Elections disqualified the slate of Constitution Party candidates.[3]

At the 2012 Constitution Party National Convention, Stufflebeam was elected the National Vice-Chairman of the Constitution Party. He originally ran for chairman, but was defeated by Frank Fluckiger.[4]

In January 2013, Stufflebeam announced the formation of an exploratory committee for a possible U.S. Senate run in Illinois in 2014.[5] However, on March 2, he announced that after long deliberation he would not run for the U.S. Senate after all.[6]

He currently resides in Belleville, Illinois.
