A year ago I supported Bill Bolling for Governor. I had tremendous respect for him. Over the last year, my support dwindled, and now my respect for him has evaporated.
Bolling is refusing to endorse the republican candidate for Governor, even going so far as to say this about Ken Cuccinelli ”“I have serious reservations about his ability to effectively and responsibly lead the state,” he said of Cuccinelli. “And given those reservations, I could not in good conscience endorse his candidacy for governor.”” What the heck?! Of course Ken will lead effectively and responsibly, just as he did as a state senator and as our Attorney General. This is nothing but bitterness and sour grapes. It does nothing but make Bill Bolling look small, petty, and vindictive.
Bill Bolling has grown so out of touch with the electorate that he thinks there is a possibility of a groundswell of support for him to run for Governor as an independent!
“I think this does give me the opportunity to be more of an independent voice on a lot of the issues facing Virginia today,” Bolling said.
“I think there are Republicans who have concerns about Mr. Cuccinelli’s candidacy and Democrats who have concerns about Mr. McAuliffe’s candidacy, and there are probably a lot of independent voters who are looking and saying, ‘Is this the best that we can do?’ So we’ll just have to see how that campaign unfolds over the next few months.”
If Bolling can’t win the republican nomination, why would he think that he could win the Govenorship as 3rd party? Bill Bolling has lost his mind, and that’s a terrible thing to see.
