RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling says he will not attend the state party convention where Republicans will pick their candidates for this fall's elections.
The Washington Post reported Wednesday (http://wapo.st/10qghMk) that Bolling would skip the convention in protest to the process that marked the end of his dream to become governor. Bolling dropped out of the governor's race after Republicans decided to pick their nominee in a convention rather than a primary, certain that such a process would favor his opponent, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.
In a statement issued Wednesday, Bolling spokeswoman Ibbie Hedrick says he didn't support changing the nomination method and that it disenfranchises many in the party.
Conventions is expected to be named the party's candidate at the convention, which will be held in Richmond next weekend.
