Bolling Considering Running for Governor as Independent

January 7, 2013

Virginia Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling is considering re-entering the governor's race as an independent.

In November Bolling removed himself from the race for the Republican nomination. He disagreed with the party's decision to chose a nominee with a convention instead of a primary.

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is the front-runner for that spot, but Bolling says the party is alienating voters.

"Unfortunately, at a time when the Republican party needs to be a big tent party, it seems to me that we're doing everything we can do to become a pup tent party," said Bolling. "That is not the right direction for the Republican party."

Terry McAuliffe is the front-runner for the Democratic nomination for governor.
