— Candidate is first Attorney General campaign to submit, verify petition signatures —
The Republican Party of Virginia is pleased to announce that John Adams is the first Republican candidate for Attorney General 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 Adams 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.
“Collecting enough signaturs to get on the ballot in Virginia isn’t easy. John Adams and his team of grassroots volunteers have done an outstanding job in organizing and mobilizing the people needed to make the ballot,” said RPV Chairman John Whitbeck. “Grassroots efforts like this are what will make the difference and bring us victory and up and down the ticket in November.”
“I cannot say enough about the dedication and hard work by our loyal volunteers and committed staff,” Adams said. “Through their hard work across this great Commonwealth, we have completed the first step toward getting on the ballot for the June 13th primary. This was a true team effort and would not have been possible without the enthusiasm of our grassroots team in every corner of 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.
