The LDS Vice Presidential Candidate You Probably Didn't Know About

Note: LDS Living does not endorse any political candidates but merely reports on current news involving Latter-day Saints.

Some may not have heard of Darrell Castle, the man running for president as a candidate for the Constitution Party—a conservative political party with a platform based on their interpretation of the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights.

That's probably because he comes from a relatively small political party. In 2014, the Constitutional Party had a little over 76,000 members as compared to the Democratic Party's nearly 42.5 million members, the Republican Party's over 30.5 million members, the Libertarian Party's over 368,000 members, and the Green Party's over 248,000 members.

And even lesser known than Darrell Castle is his running mate, vice presidential candidate and Latter-day Saint Scott Bradley.

Born and raised in Utah, Bradley served in the Utah Air National Guard before serving a mission for the Church. He came back to complete a bachelor's from Westminster College, a master's of public administration from BYU, and a Ph.D. in constitutional law from George Wythe University.

Bradley worked as an executive for AT&T then as an administrator for Utah State University. Currently an independent business owner living in Logan, Utah, Bradley ran for Senate twice, in 2006 and 2010. He and his wife, Tamara, have five children and 11 grandchildren.
