Donald Trump is first candidate to submit petitions for March 1, 2016 GOP primary

The Republican Party of Virginia (RPV) has announced that Donald Trump is the first Republican candidate to submit signatures for “pre-check” review by the RPV. The signatures are ready for submission to the State Board of Elections, well ahead of the December 10, 2015 deadline, according to a news release.

RPV reviewed the signatures on the petitions submitted and the Trump Campaign passed the pre-check process. This means there are sufficient signatures to meet the 5,000 statewide and 200 per Congressional District requirements of Virginia law.

“The pathway to the White House runs through Virginia,” RPV Chairman John Whitbeck was quoted as saying in a press release. “With our March 1, 2016 primary deadline less than a month away, we are excited that Donald Trump has become the first candidate to have the necessary signatures to qualify for the ballot. 

“We appreciate the campaign’s efforts to get the signatures in quickly and it demonstrates how committed they are to making the ballot here and competing with their strong ground game in Virginia,” Whitbeck added.
