It’s Mitt Romney v. Ron Paul In Virginia, Others Don’t Make Ballot

EDITOR’S COMMENT: Not only has the media attack campaign against Ron Paul backfired, but the propped up GOP candidates have proven completely hollow. Newt Gingrich is a ringer for the establishment pure and simple. He never has had the campaign structure or donor support to make him viable, and has failed or nearly failed for numerous ballots. It is increasingly a race between Romney & Ron Paul for the Republican nomination, though there are still plenty of trick cards that can be played at the party level between now and convention.

When you’re running to be the next President of the United States, it’s generally a good idea to make sure people are able to vote for you. But in a surprise twist in this already twisted-up campaign, both Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry will not be on the ballot when Virginia Republican voters go to cast their vote for their party’s nominee, meaning the primary in that state will boil down to a contest between Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.

Several months ago, Gingrich did not file for the Missouri primary, but made a deliberate decision to do so based on his campaign strategy. This time around, Gingrich actively pursued getting on the ballot in Virginia, claiming to have reached the 10,000 signature threshold to qualify. Perry’s campaign claimed they had reached it as well, but after state party officials went through all the signatures to validate them, neither candidate ended up qualifying.

“After verification, RPV has determined that Newt Gingrich did not submit required 10k signatures and has not qualified for the VA primary,” the party announced on Twitter.


The rejection is a significant setback for the Gingrich campaign since he is leading the polls in Virginia among likely Republican voters and is seen as a strong contender for the nomination.
