Lt. Governor Bolling Suspends Campaign for Governor

VSSA just received an email from Lt. Governor Bill Bolling confirming what the media has been reporting since late last night.
I am writing to advise you that after a great deal of consideration I have decided to suspend my campaign for the Republican Party's nomination for Governor of Virginia.  Needless to say, this was a very difficult decision for me, and I know it will come as a surprise and disappointment to you, but I am confident it is the right decision.
Noting the fact that the Republican Party of Virginia last summer changed the nominating process from a primary to a convention, and the "dramatic impact that decision had on the 2013 campaign," he concluded that the decision to change the method of nomination from a primary to a convention created too many obstacles for his campaign to overcome.

This leaves Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli with only reality television and White House crasher personality Tareq Salahi.  That should not pose much of a challenge and Cuccinelli can concentrate on defeating the only announced Democratic candidate, 2009 primary loser Terry McAuliffe.
