Libertarian Gubernatorial Candidate Wins Spot on Virginia Ballot

So voters won't have to pick between two psychos

|

Move over, Terry McAuliffe and Ken Cuccinelli: there's a third candidate on the ballot in the governor's race this November.

The Libertarian Party of Virginia announced Thursday that its gubernatorial candidate, Robert Sarvis, obtained the 10,000 signatures of registered Virginia voters needed to earn a spot on November's ballot. Virginia's requirements for third-party ballot access required Sarvis to collect at least 400 of those signatures from each of the Commonwealth's 11 congressional districts.

Sarvis, a lawyer, software engineer and math teacher from Annandale who might be characterized as fiscally conservative and socially liberal, is running a campaign around the issues of tax reform, school choice, gun rights, marijuana legalization, drug decriminalization and reform, and recognizing gay marriages.
