WASHINGTON--Winning a presidential nomination means picking up delegates state-by-state. GOP White House hopeful Newt Gingrich, whose boomlet is bursting, failed to qualify for the Virginia ballot. He barely has an Illinois operation.
Gingrich spokesman Campaign Director Michael Krull said in a statement they will try to recoup in Virginia with a write-in campaign.
"Only a failed system excludes four out of the six major candidates seeking access to the ballot. Voters deserve the right to vote for any top contender, especially leading candidates. We will work with the Republican Party of Virginia to pursue an aggressive write-in campaign to make sure that all the voters of Virginia are able to vote for the candidate of their choice," Krull said.
