SPOKANE, Wash. —

A syndicated radio talk show host who broadcasts from Spokane County is trying to parlay her strong conservatism, an unusual tax plan and the story of her near-death experience into a long-shot bid for the presidency.

Laurie Roth says she was called by God about a year ago to seek the White House from her double-wide trailer in Elk, Wash., and to turn the nation around.

The Spokesman-Review ( http://is.gd/e3d0iz) reports the self-described Annie Oakley of the Airwaves will find out on Saturday if the Constitution Party, one of the nation's largest third-party organizations, will put her atop its ticket in the fall election.

The 51-year-old mother of two is one of three main candidates seeking the conservative party nomination at its national convention in Nashville.
