Petitions were due yesterday for candidates wanting to run for the Republican nomination for Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General at May, 2009′s convention. According to Virginia Virtucon, everyone made the cut but the Muldoon campaign may have to wait for it’s 11th CD signaturs to be verified:
Word is that Muldoon turned in enough petitions from each Cong. Dist., but only managed to gather 281 signatures in the 11th CD. Although only 200 signatures are required from each of the 11 CDs, if a candidates submits less than 300 signatures in a district, then each individual signature must be verified to be a registered voter in that district. This process is going on today.
Patrick Muldoon is challenging Bill Bolling for the Lieutenant Governor nomination. Dave Foster, Ken Cuccinelli, and John Brownlee are running for Attorney General. Bob McDonnell is unopposed for Governor.
