Goode said he “is the kind of person ready to snap and shoot up a public place” and said he wanted to “see the world burn,” according to prosecutors. It was not immediately clear to whom he had made the threats.

The candidates are campaigning across New York in advance of the state primary elections on April 19.

Goode was scheduled for an initial court appearance on Friday in federal court in Buffalo and faces a maximum of five years in prison if convicted.
