Newt Gingrich and his wife Callista won't be casting a vote in their home state of Virginia today — because neither wants to vote for Mitt Romney or Ron Paul, the only two GOP candidates on the ballot there.

“In this Republican primary, when given a choice between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney, they could not pick either one,” said Gingrich Spokesman R.C. Hammond.

According to NBC, Gingrich and his wife Callista cannot even cast a vote in the primary because “they did not request an absentee one,” said Hammond.

Romney and Paul gathered enough required signatures for their names to appear on the Virginia ballot, but Gingrich and Rick Santorum did not.

Hammond went on to say that despite what happens in the aftermath of Super Tuesday, the Gingriches say they will back whomever the GOP nominee is “because no one is worse than Barack Obama.”
