Corey Fauconier

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch on December 6:

“Libertarian activist Corey Fauconier filed paperwork with the Virginia Department of Elections by Monday’s 5 p.m. filing deadline, according to state officials. The filing is under review to ensure Fauconier met all requirements for ballot access, including the submission of 250 petition signatures from voters in the district.”

“Fauconier managed the 2015 Senate campaign of Libertarian Carl Loser, who finished fourth out of four candidates running for the 10th District seat now held by Sen. Glen H. Sturtevant Jr., R-Richmond. A New York native and hip-hop enthusiast who has gone by the stage name “Sage,” Fauconier drew attention last year for a Libertarian rap video that promoted Loser’s campaign.”

The Department of Elections confirmed on Wednesday that Fauconier turned in over 250 valid signatures and that he’s now in a two-way race for the senate seat.

The special election is for the ninth legislative district in the Virginia Senate, and will be held on January 10, 2017.
