Vogel Campaign Clears RPV Petition Pre-Check
— Candidate is third Lt. Governor campaign to submit, verify petition signatures —
The Republican Party of Virginia is pleased to announce that Jill Vogel is the third Republican candidate for Lt. 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 Vogel 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.
“Every potential member of our 2017 ticket knows the importance of grassroots engagement this year. Grassroots efforts like these are building the infrastructure for GOP wins in November,” said RPV Chairman John Whitbeck. “Senator Vogel’s team and volunteers have done an extraordinary job, and I’m pleased to announce that they’ve met the standards to appear on the 2017 Virginia primary ballot.”
“I am so grateful to all the volunteers across the commonwealth that sacrificed their time to collect signatures,” said Senator Vogel. “I am floored at all the support and so thankful.”
All statewide Virginia GOP candidates have been invited to submit their signatures for pre-clearance before the deadline at the end of March. Virginia will hold a primary on June 13, 2017.
