From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:
Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s fight to get his name on Virginia’s March 6 primary ballot will resume at a hearing in federal court in Richmond on Jan. 13.
In an emergency motion filed Wednesday, Perry asked that the State Board of Elections and Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Pat Mullins be barred from enforcing the state residency requirement for people who collect signatures for ballot access.
Good, it does my heart good to hear how main stream party members are hoisted up on the stringent ballot access rules that affect third party candidates. Serves ‘em right. Of course, it sucks to be a Perry supporter in Virginia right now. But then, it sucks to be a third-party candidate or a supporter, too.
