Political tango, anyone?
Maybe Newt can quit crying now. The last straw embarrassment that revealed his campaign wasn’t all that is about to be fixed.
Rick Perry already filed a law suit, but right now his team is scrambling trying to fix blame on why Perry bombed so badly when trying to run for president.
Big news out of Virginia, which is backed by Republicans and Democrats in the state. Story from Carl Cameron of Fox News:
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.
[...] Cuccinelli’s proposal is expected to state that if the Virginia Board of Elections certifies that a candidate is receiving federal matching funds, or has qualified to receive them, that candidate will upon request be automatically added to the ballot.
Two former Democratic attorneys general are also backing the move, along with a former Democratic state party chairman and a former Republican state party chairman.
UPDATE: Everyone seems to be jumping on Perry’s bandwagon, according to a report from Dave Weigel.
