Goforth was defeated in the May 4, 2010 primary by Patsy Keever.[1]

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.[2]
