Virginia May Expand Primary Ballot

After only Mitt Romney (R) and Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) qualified for the presidential primary ballot in Virginia, the state's Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R) announced that he "will intervene to ensure that more Republican presidential candidates will appear on the state's primary ballot," reports The Fix.

"Cuccinelli was backed up by two Democratic former attorney generals, Steve Rosenthal and Tony Troy. Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) is also open to broadening the requirements, according to a spokesman... But Cuccinelli did not elaborate on how he would follow through on the pledge. State legislators have already said that there is no time to change the requirements for the ballots, which must be sent out by Jan. 31."
