U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham has become the seventh Republican presidential hopeful to submit enough signatures to make the ballot in Virginia, the state Republican Party said Wednesday.
The crowded ballot is a far cry from the 2012 presidential race, where just two candidates met Virginia’s signature thresholds, leading the General Assembly to cut those thresholds in half.
Now it’s 5,000 signatures with 200 from each congressional district. Graham cleared the party’s pre-check and his signatures have been forwarded to the State Board of Elections, the party said in a news release.
