Default Newt Gingrich has failed to qualify for Virginia's Primary.

Virginia says Newt is short the required 10,000 ballot signatures required to qualify to run in the primary.

Newt vows to run on a write-in campaign.

The former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas governor, Rick Perry, have both failed to qualify for the Virginia primary ballot, Republican party officials have said.
Neither politician, who were both frontrunners for the US presidential candidacy for the GOP, submitted enough signatures from registered voters to stand for the state's Republican primary on 6 March.
