Good news for third parties:
Former congressman Virgil Goode Jr. will remain on Virginia’s presidential ballot after state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II concluded an investigation into fraud allegations leveled at Goode by the state Republican Party.
Cuccinelli found, according to a news release from his office, that “while there may have been certain irregularities, nothing he examined would prevent Goode from being certified for the Virginia ballot in the upcoming November presidential election.”
A Washington Post poll of Virginia released this week showed Goode getting 2 percent support among registered voters, while Libertarian Gary Johnson got 4 percent and Green Party nominee Jill Stein took 1 percent. President Obama led Romney in that five-way matchup, 48 percent to 40 percent.
