Today, he said in a statement that he still feels strongly that Virginia should change its ballot access requirements.
“However, after working through different scenarios with Republican and Democratic leaders to attempt to make changes in time for the 2012 Presidential election, my concern grows that we cannot find a way to make such changes fair to the Romney and Paul campaigns that qualified even with Virginia’s burdensome system,” he said in the statement. “A further critical factor that I must consider is that changing the rules midstream is inconsistent with respecting and preserving the rule of law – something I am particularly sensitive to as Virginia’s attorney general.”
So in Virginia, it's going to be either Romney or Ron Paul.
As for now, Rick Perry's lawsuit (now joined by four other candidates) will go forward.
