Bolling forms committee to run for governor in 2013

Anita Kumar

Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling has formed a campaign committee to run for governor in 2013, sources tell us. We confirmed that information with the experts at the Virginia Public Access Project, a non-partisan tracker of money in politics.

Bolling (R) quietly formed Friends of Bill Bolling on March 26, soon after the 60-day legislative session ended. The committee has not had to report what it has raised yet.

In the spring of 2008, Bolling surprised many people, including then Attorney General Bob McDonnell, by deciding to seek re-election. McDonnell and Bolling ran as a team last year, and McDonnell has pledged to support Bolling for governor in 2013.

Bolling, a former state senator who represented suburban Richmond, works part time as lieutenant governor and also is in the insurance business.

I wouldn't say that he "surprised" McDonnell. McDonnell told him to step aside.
