Peter Schiff will be on the GOP ballot in August

The CT Mirror's Mark Pazniokas is reporting:

To qualify, Schiff, 47, the president of Euro Pacific Capital, had to collect signature from 2 percent of the registered Republicans in Connecticut. Bysiewicz said the registrars of voters reported validating 8,697 signatures, just 429 more than the required 8,268 names.

The other way to qualify for a primary is win the the support of at least 15 percent of the delegates at a state nominating convention.

So Linda McMahon, Rob Simmons and Peter Schiff will all be on the GOP ballot in August. I hope there's a few debates.
