Moran Files 16,928 Signatures
A few hours after Terry McAuliffe submitted his petition to try to get on the Democratic primary ballot, Brian Moran announced that he has also filed his signatures today with the State Board of Elections.
Earlier today, Moran was widely expected to file his petition around noon to try to compete with McAuliffe for the first spot on the ballot. Shortly before noon, however, Moran's campaign announced it needed more time to make sure its signatures were properly notarized.
This issue was apparently quickly resolved. Moran sent out a statement this afternoon saying he submitted 16,928 signatures to the State Board of Elections. McAuliffe submitted 17,243 signatures.
Only 10,000 valid signatures are needed to qualify for the ballot.
