From BearingDrift comes the report that only four candidates have gotten in their nominating petitions for the Virginia primary by today’s deadlines:
- Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich;
- Rep. Ron Paul (TX);
- Texas Governor Rick Perry; and
- Fomer Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.
The Virginia primary is on March 6th; it is, in fact, nominally part of “Super Tuesday,” although it’s not going to be the blowout this year that it’s been in the past. There’s no indication that the Bachmann, Huntsman, and/or Santorum campaigns have filed for an extension, either.
As to what it means… well, I’m getting conflicting opinions. Reply Hazy: Try Again Later.
