Emergency Legislation Might Put Perry, Gingrich, Back on the Ballot

Fox News is reporting that Virginia's Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli, may intervene in the primary process to get more Republican names on the ballot. The Virginia ballot currently includes Mitt Romney, Ron Paul and...nobody else.

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is intervening in the Virginia presidential primary dispute and plans to file emergency legislation to address the inability of most Republican presidential candidates to get their name on the ballot, Fox News has learned. 

Only Mitt Romney and Ron Paul qualified for the Virginia primary, a contest with 49 delegates up for grabs.

 

The failure of other candidates to qualify -- notably Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry -- led to complaints that the 10,000-signature requirement is too stringent. 
I can't help but think that the candidates who didn't receive enough signatures have no one to blame but themselves, given that the Virginia GOP warned all candidates of the requirement in March and again in October. That said, Virginia voters probably wouldn't mind having more than two candidates to choose from in March.
