Very strange indeed. Hope they can find a way to fight this.

Yes, but what’s noteworthy is that Gingrich and Perry had the numbers and the organization to get the signatures, and (apparently) incompetence in the campaign screwed up.

No, apparently Gingrich and Perry didn't have the numbers.

Gingrich and Perry didn't have the organization to get valid signatures.

Gingrich has clearly lacked money to maintain his organization. Perry has the money, but with his low poll numbers, it's tough for him to keep a motivated organization in place.

Gingrich and Perry’s valid signatures were ruled invalid by Romney operatives.

The consensus on TV on poli talk shows is that if Perry and Gingrich could not qualify for Va. then they have weak campaigns and don’t deserve to move forward.Also...that Obama won the battle and the GOP Boehner all look like idiots.No GOP rep is stating loud and clear so the sheeple hear that Obama did not want new jobs with the pipeline.They are predicting Obama wins this battle and act as if he is doing a dandy job.It is all beyond insane.

I honestly have no idea. That is a good question. I’ve heard that some states have revised their rules to allow for conservative inroads. Obviously, Virginia didn’t.

Since when is the Freeper “Huck” Mike Huckabee, the former Governor of Arkansas and GOP hopeful form the 2008 election cycle? The member’s page is pretty clear, and it really doesn’t reflect the Mike Huckabee I happen to know (and no - I’m not a fan by any stretch).

It depends on how the voting machines are set up. If there’s no “write-in” option at the machines, then there’s no write-in option. Even if there were a write-in option, it would require a massive communication effort because the poll workers probably will do nothing to encourage write-ins.

“spent Friday validating petitions that the four candidates submitted by the Thursday 5 p.m. deadline”

How many petitions were thrown out? Does anyone know?

Don’tcha think a couple of professional politicians would spend the millions taken in on a campaign organization in all 50 states.

Or do they really want to retire and pocket the money?
