Virginia Primary To Be Romney Vs. Ron Paul

The Virginia Republican primary race is now a two-man competition between Mitt Romney and Ron Paul, after all other GOP hopefuls failed to meet requirements to get on the state ballot.

“After verification, RPV has determined that Newt Gingrich did not submit required 10k signatures and has not qualified for the VA primary,” ABC News quotes the Republican Party of Virginia as posting on his Twitter account on Saturday morning.

The Virginia Primary is on Super Tuesday, March 6.

Super Tuesday states include:
Alaska (caucus)
Georgia (primary)
Idaho (caucus)
Massachusetts (primary)
North Dakota (caucus)
Ohio (primary)
Oklahoma (primary)
Tennessee (primary)
Vermont (primary)
Virginia (primary)



  1. I would think that Ron Paul would have a better chance to win if the rest of the (non-Ron Paul) votes were split up among the mainstream candidates.

    However, this will be a test if Republican voters would prefer a centrist over a constitutionalist.

  2. Good News: Headline Status For RP.
    Bad News: Idiot vote gets consolidated.

  3. Oops!
    Also, Merry Christmas Bob and Bob!!!! And everybody else!

  4. Newt in Virginia: I predict that he will get himself on the ballot. Remember when Rahm Emmanuel wanted to run for Mayor of Chicago, and he wasn't eligible because he wasn't a resident of the city? A wink and a nod, and he is Mayor.

    Another example, when George W picked Dick Cheney as his running mate, they both lived in Texas, and there's a law that says your VP has to be from a different state. Cheney moves to Wyoming, a wink and a nod...

    There are a million more examples of how beltway insiders get their way. And Newt is about as much of a beltway insider as you can get.
