RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling says he won't run for governor in 2013.
In a statement released Wednesday, Bolling says the state GOP's decision to pick the party's 2013 nominees through a convention creates too many obstacles for his campaign to overcome.
His decision leaves the Republican gubernatorial race wide open for Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.
The convention nominating method favors the more conservative Cuccinelli.
Bolling says he plans to remain involved in the 2013 campaigns. He says he wants to ensure that candidates focus on important issues facing Virginia and offer a "positive and realistic vision" for leading the state.
