Stewart Campaign Clears RPV Petition Pre-Check
— Candidate is second gubernatorial campaign to submit, verify petition signatures —
The Republican Party of Virginia is pleased to announce that Prince William County Board of Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart is the second Republican candidate for Governor to submit signatures for “pre-check” review by the RPV and for submission to the State Board of Elections.
RPV reviewed the signatures on the petitions submitted and the Stewart Campaign passed the pre-check process with significantly more signatures than required to meet the 10,000 statewide and 400 per Congressional District requirements of Virginia law.
“Corey Stewart’s campaign team of grassroots volunteers have done an excellent job in collecting signatures to get on the Virginia ballot; his entire team should be very pleased with their effort,” said RPV Chairman John Whitbeck. “Our GOP candidates understand the importance of grassroots engagement and are laying the groundwork for victory in November.”
“I want to thank all the hundreds of volunteers across the Commonwealth for their hard work these past two months,” Stewart said. “Our volunteers are the best, most enthusiastic supporters out there, and their dedicated effort demonstrates this campaign’s superior organization and ground game and their commitment to taking back Virginia.”
All statewide Virginia GOP candidates have been invited to submit their signatures for preclearance before the deadline at the end of March. Virginia will hold a primary on June 13, 2017.
