Wagner Campaign Clears RPV Petition Pre-Check
— Candidate is third gubernatorial campaign to submit, verify petition signatures —
The Republican Party of Virginia is pleased to announce that state Sen. Frank Wagner, R-Virginia Beach, is the third 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 Wagner 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.
“All of our 2017 GOP candidates understand the importance of activating grassroots Republicans in this election cycle, and petition efforts like the one completed by Frank Wagner and his team are doing just that,” said RPV Chairman John Whitbeck. “Frank Wagner’s team has done a fantastic job gathering the required signatures. Senator Wagner and his team have a lot to be proud of in this effort.”
On clearing this hurdle, Senator Frank Wagner said, “A big thank you to my staff and volunteers across the Commonwealth for their efforts. I am very grateful.”
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.
