"Cliff Hyra, a 34-year-old patent attorney from Hanover County, has qualified to be on the ballot as the Libertarian Party candidate, the Virginia Department of Elections confirmed Thursday.

"Hyra and his supporters submitted petitions bearing more than 10,000 signatures to earn a spot....

"Hyra is making his first bid for elected office. He has a law degree from George Mason University and a bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering from Virginia Tech, according to his law office website. He is married with three children.

"Four years ago, Libertarian Robert Sarvis qualified for the gubernatorial election but collected less than 7 percent of the popular vote. Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe narrowly defeated GOP candidate Ken Cuccinelli in 2013 by 56,435 votes out of 2.2 million cast."
