White House gate crasher to run for Va governor

White House gate crasher Tareq Salahi says he intends to run for Virginia governor next year By The Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) ' White House gate crasher Tareq Salahi says he plans to run for governor of Virginia next year.

Salahi completed a declaration of candidacy. But that is meaningless until Jan. 1.

A State Board of Elections official says the agency that oversees Virginia elections can't accept the declaration until the year in which the election is scheduled.



Salahi's plans to run as a Republican comes just days after another GOP candidate for governor, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, filed a lawsuit against Salahi and his winery. It claims they cheated customers who bought winery tours.

Salahi gained fleeting fame with his now estranged wife as uninvited guests to a 2009 White House state dinner.
