How many state ballots is Gingrich not going to be on?
Missouri. Virginia. Anywhere else?
For the General Election?
He won't be on ANY if he doesn't take the GOP nomination.
Or do you mean "Primary" ballots?
I know a Federal Judge has affirmed the GOP's position regarding Newt's eligibility to be ON the VA ballot. But I wonder if that's the final word?
It's a stupid state of affairs to have only two guys ON a primary ballot in a field where others are seriously running.
Missouri's primary is meaningless. The caucus that follows is where the delegates are given.
Newt will be on the Missouri caucus ballot I hear so Gramps is right,
Missouri's primary is non-binding, essentially a state straw poll. The actual delegates are picked at a state caucus.
Virginia illegally threw Newt and everyone else off the ballot. Another indication that they know Romney is a weak candidate.
Yeah, it was illegal to disqualify 1500 forged signatures.
Virginia--with the exception of Ron Paul and Mitt Romney made it on thr Virginia ballot--and the only reason they made it--was because they ran for the GOP nominee in 2008. Virginia because of their onerous ballot access rules ended up eliminating 6 out of 8 GOP candidates--which is voter suppression. Everyone should be able to vote for the candidate of their choice.
3 Virgina State attorney generals (past and current--dem, and rep.) are now challenging Virgina's ballot access regulations -referring to them as being unconstitutional.
Newt is not a serious candidate, he is in it to later be able to sell books and sell talking to groups of people.
If Newt didn't get 10 ,million in super pac money he wouldn't even exist. Newt lacks real support, what Newt has is the power of advertizing, without it he is nothing. Hell he proved he can’t even debate honestly.
Honestlt I don't care if Newt gets the nominations, because if he does there is a much stronger chance Paul goes thrid party and if anything will do much better.
Is there an open lawsuit? The only one I know about offhand is this one:
oh, and the one filed by the independent candidate last year, the suit which led to the GOP strengthening their criteria for approving candidates
p.s., why do you think that Gingrich should be allowed on the ballot when he submitted 1500 forged signatures?
This doesn't even make sense. Missouri IS a caucus. It's not a primary. And the delegates are decided in the many levels of conventions that follow the caucus. It's the same as Iowa.
Separate names with a comma.
