Goforth was defeated in the May 4, 2010 primary by Patsy Keever.
Goforth resigned on July 31, 2010 -- several months in advance of his term completing. He was defeated in the primary on May 4 which already guaranteed his term would finish this year. There was speculation that he resigned early in order to expedite the time it takes to either be appointed to a board or register as a lobbyist.
Goforth ran for re-election to the 115th District seat in 2010. He lost to challenger Patricia Keever in the Democratic primary on May 4, 2010. Keever faced Mark Crawford (R) in the general election on November 2, 2010.
