A big development in the lawsuit filed in Virginia by Texas Gov. Rick Perry and joined by Gingrich, Santorum, and Huntsman contesting the state’s ballot access requirements. The federal judge has just filed an order saying that there is a “strong likelihood that the Court will find the residency requirement for petition circulators to be unconstitutional” at the hearing scheduled for Friday. So it is very likely that there will be additional candidates on the Virginia GOP ballot besides Romney and Paul.

Here is a copy of Judge Gibney’s court order.
