I generally prefer to stick to discussing the local & statewide issues as much as possible but hey, I’m human and I get attracted to the national spotlight from time to time as well.
I saw the news about Rick Perry last night and I woke up this morning to learn news about Newt Gingrich. For those of you busy actually getting ready for the holiday this Christmas Eve and don’t know what I’m talking about, it appears that both candidates have FAILED to obtain ballot access in Virginia for not submitting enough certified signatures. It seems that their rules are particularly tight in VA.
The deadline for presidential candidates to submit their raw signatures into the local Registrar of Voters was yesterday at 5:00 pm. The next deadline is submission into the Secretary of the Commonwealth by Friday, January 6 at 5:00 pm. The deadline to file objections to any signatures is Monday, January 9 at 5:00 pm
All that having been said, just what is the state of the various Republican presidential campaigns here in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts?
Could Gingrich or Perry flame out here? Do they have strong campaigns around here? Are they on life support? How about Ron Paul? I assume that we can assume that Mitt Romney isn’t doing too bad in his home turf but what about Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, or Jon Huntsman?
Who would you even contact if you wanted to sign on for a particular campaign?
Today is Christmas Eve and the New Year is just about a week away. That leaves just over three quick months until primary day. I bet most RMG’ers know who they’re voting for but for whom will we be able to vote & just how reasonable are their chances at earning delegates here in Massachusetts?
