Corey Stewart Won't Run for Lt. Gov.
Prince William Board of County Supervisors Chairman Corey A. Stewart (R) said today he will not run for lieutenant governor next year now that Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) has announced he will seek reelection.
Bolling said Monday he will support Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell (R) for governor instead of seeking the nomination himself.
"I was surprised. I had no idea it was coming," Stewart (R-At Large) said of Bolling's announcement. "I really want to be lieutenant governor, but this is the strongest ticket. It's the best thing for the party."
Bolling's decision also upset the political futures of Del. Tim Hugo (R-Fairfax) and former state Sen. James K. "Jay" O'Brien (R-Fairfax), who also said they will not seek the nomination for lieutenant governor.
