Va Lt. Gov. Bolling Keeps Door Open On Write-In Candidacy

July 29, 2013


On Friday, Republican Virginia Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling did not rule out the possibility of waging a write-in campaign for governor against Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Ken Cuccinelli.

Bolling withdrew from the governor’s race last year when he realized he could not beat current Republican gubernatorial nominee and Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. He then floated the possibility of running as an independent before announcing he would not do so in March.

But in the wake of the ethics charges against Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell that have spawned resignation rumors, Virginians have wondered if the ambitious Lieutenant Governor may again attempt a run.

As the Virginia-Pilot notes, “one scenario envisions Bolling filling in for McDonnell as interim governor and then deciding to wage a write-in effort because it’s too late to qualify for the November ballot,” while another involves Bolling replacing the Libertarian Party’s nominee on the November ballot.
