Perry files appeal

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Both sides in the Virginia ballot access case are waiting to see if an appeals court will take the case.

Sunday, Governor Rick Perry appealed last Friday's decision to keep him out of the Virginia primary.

Perry and others didn't qualify for the ballot...under rules they say are unconstitutional.

Whatever happens next will have to be done quickly.

Absentee ballots go out this week.
