Ken Cuccinelli in 2013?
Rumor has it that Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli will seek the GOP Nomination for the Governor of Virginia in 2013, when Governor Bob McDonnell's term ends. (Virginia governors, by law are not allowed to seek consecutive terms) Cuccinelli is leading one of the two lawsuits of ObamaCare that is making its way to the US Supreme Court and is well known, not only in Virginia, but across the country. If his case wins, he will gain even more notoriety. There is likely to be a big primary battle as Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling has announced his intention to run, and waiting in the wings is former DNC Chair/Clinton Booster Terry McAuliffe.
Old Dominion will have a Battle Royale in 2013 and because it will be one of only two gubernatorial races that year, (New Jersey being the second), Americans will be watching.
