Perry appeals judge's ruling on Va. primary ballot

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry is appealing a federal judge's refusal to add him and three other candidates to Virginia's Republican presidential primary ballot.

In a filing on Sunday with the Richmond-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Perry's attorneys requested that the court order his name be placed on the ballot, or order that ballots not be printed or mailed before the court considers the appeal.

Perry sued last month after failing to submit enough signatures to get on the March 6 ballot. Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman also failed to qualify and later joined Perry's lawsuit.

Only former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Rep. Ron Paulqualified.

On Friday, a federal district court judge said the candidates waited too long to challenge the state's ballot-qualifying law.
