McDonnell, Bolling Not United On Frederick Front

Tim Craig

Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell and Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling ( R) may be running as a team this year, but they have adopted separate approaches when it comes to the question of whether Del. Jeffrey M. Frederick ( R) should be replaced as chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia.

McDonnell is supporting efforts on the GOP state central committee to remove Frederick for incompetence. But Bolling has decided to stay out of the fight.

"Our position is that this is something between State Central and Frederick," said Randy Marcus, Bolling's chief of staff. "We are not for it. We are not against it. We have enough on our plate right now."

McDonnell had no problem supporting Jeff Frederick when he compared Barack Obama to Osama bin Laden, so what happened? Now that Frederick's hurting his own campaign, McDonnell throws him under the bus? I don't think I can trust someone like that!

Bob McDonnell is trying to force every conservative Republican out of Virginia politics so he can run as the liberal he thinks Virginia wants. First Frederick, now Cuccinelli, I wonder who else Bob will cast overboard as he dashes to the left. We need a candidate who is proud to be a conservative.

Draft Bob Marshall?
