Skip to comments.Perry Gets Virginia Ballot Court Date (asking other candidates to join suit)
Posted on 12/29/2011 12:21:05 PM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
Texas Gov. Rick Perry's campaign has gotten its court date in Virginia. U.S. District Judge John Gibney Jr. has set a hearing on the validity of Virginia's primary ballot for Jan 13th.
Before that hearing, the judge is requiring that the Perry campaign reach out to the other Republican candidates, to see if they would be interested in joining either side of the suit. Perry Communications director Ray Sullivan says the campaign will "respect and abide by that order."
In fact, Sullivan says Perry would "welcome other candidate involvement."
Virginia has some of the country's toughest ballot requirements. Only two GOP candidates qualified in Virginia, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.
Virginia's legislature meets on Jan. 11. Newt Gingrich wants state legislators to change the law in time for him to start a write-in campaign for the March 6 presidential primary. Sullivan says the Perry campaign is also leaving that option, and any other option that "gets greater access to the ballot," open.

Now we will find out just how serious the other candidates are. Let’s watch who joins in and who doesn’t.
I'm short feathers but I have plenty of this foam torn into little red, white and blue chunks. That'd smart pulling that stuff loose.
Are you drunk? That didn’t make any sense at all.
Hmmmmmmm...... or sit silent.
Yep, that’s what I figure too. Those who remain silent are Romneyites. I figure Newt will join in because he actually does want on the ballot, not sure about the others.
If Mitt or Ron’s lawyers offer the VBE ‘side’ any assistance at all, or evidence....
Laws and administrative procedures that result in only two candidates getting on the list ~ a madman and a loser ~ are definitely not something we want to continue.
Existing officials are responsible for this. They gotta' go!
