Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich failed to submit the required 10,000 signatures needed to qualify for the Republican primary ballot in Virginia, the Republican Party of Virginia announced via Twitter early Saturday.
The announcement came one day after the Virginia GOP determined that Texas Gov. Rick Perry didn't meet the same requirements to appear on the ballot.
Virginia requires candidates to submit petitions with 10,000 signatures from registered Virginia voters. Additionally, 400 signatures must come from voters in each of the commonwealth's 11 congressional districts.
The Virginia GOP said on its Twitter feed that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Rep. Ron Paul had both submitted enough signatures. Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum did not submit petitions.
Virginia holds its Republican primary on March 6.
