Late last week, a federal district court rejected several GOP presidential candidates’ challenge to the Virginia law that allegedly prevented them from being listed on the state’s GOP primary ballot on the grounds that the candidates delayed too long before challenging the law. This decision has now been upheld by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. As election law scholar Rick Hasen points out, this decision is unlikely to be reversed on appeal.
