Rick Perry has been knocked off the Virginia GOP primary ballot, a key bar for candidate credibility past the early states - and a surprising state of affairs for the only campaign other than Mitt Romney that has had the resources with which to organize.
The party acknowledged it on its Twitter feed, saying, ""After verification, RPV has determined that Rick Perry did not submit the required 10k signatures and has not qualified for the VA primary."
The only two candidates certified so far for the ballot are Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman failed to submit the signatures.
That leaves Newt Gingrich as the remaining question mark - and as Jonathan Martin reported earlier, he still is not a lock for the ballot, given that he also only cleared the 10,000 signature by over 1,000.

The guy is an EPIC BOZO who does nothing for the state of Texas other than sucking the a$$es of the wealthy down there and crushing the middle-class and stamping out the American dream for the average person.
Everything he does screws the average working family down there. Epic bozo always kissing the a$$es of the wealthy at the expense of the middle-class.
He's good for nothing when it comes to the average American living in Texas.
The poor misguided folks down there vote him in because they are completely mesmerized by any devil politician who says the word "god" or "Christian" every once in a while.

VA seems to be a decent sized state to win, with 50 delegates. Their primary is on Super Tuesday. Perry/Gingrich need it more badly since they likely won't be getting as far as Romney/Paul.
