Gingrich, Bachmann, Huntsman, Santorum and Perry could not come up with 10,000 signatures to be in the Virginia Primary for their names to be on the ballot.
But Paul and Romney did get the 10,000 signatures needed.
Fox news reported about Gingrich and Perry.
After verification, RPV has determined that Newt Gingrich did not submit required 10k signatures and has not qualified for the VA primary," the Republican Party of Virginia announced early Saturday on its Twitter website.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry also fell short of the 10,000 signatures of registered voters required for a candidate's name to be on the primary ballot, but former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Rep. Ron Paul will be on the ballot.
CNN is also reporting Gingrich and Perry not getting the 10000 signatures.
Republican presidential candidates Michele Bachmann, Jon Huntsman and Rick Santorum failed to qualify for the Virginia ballot, according to state GOP officials.
The Washington Post is saying that Gingrich and Perry have claimed they did submit the signatures needed, but the GOP officials have not been able to verify the signatures!
LOL, so did they falsify signatures?
This will be interesting, no doubt in the days ahead.
I expect to hear law suits being filed by the candidates to have their names on the ballot in Virginia. I have no doubt that Judges will end up allowing their names, because they are the establishment after all.
But if the tables were turned and Ron Paul's signatures were not verified, I would have no doubt the courts would keep Paul's name off the ballot.
Expect MSM going full throttle negative against Paul. Watch the only time they will mention his name is to be negative.
A CNN reporter is reported to have said that "We have the power to get candidates elected or not."
