Bolling Hits Cuccinelli for Being Too Conservative

Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) told the Richmond Times Dispatch about a meeting requested by Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R), the man who outmaneuvered him for the Republican gubernatorial nomination.

"Losing has liberated Bolling, loosening his image and his tongue. The loyal Republican who deferred to others defers no longer. Bolling is especially direct in expressing his distaste for the negative image the GOP projects and the just-say-no issues promoted by its new titular leader: Cuccinelli. This is an uncharacteristic role for Bolling -- he is refusing to endorse Cuccinelli and will decide by mid-March on an independent candidacy that could sink Cuccinelli's -- and it is generating attention from an unlikely quarter."

Said Bolling: "It's like he's written off trying to reach mainstream voters."
