The Washington Times Daily - - Metro -

Virginia At­tor­ney Gen­eral Ken­neth T. Cuc­cinelli II an­nounced that his cam­paign filed pa­pers with the State Board of Elec­tions on Thurs­day to for­mally es­tab­lish a cam­paign com­mit­tee to run for gov­er­nor in 2013.

“I am run­ning for Gov­er­nor to con­tinue the work I have un­der­taken dur­ing my ten­ure as At­tor­ney Gen­eral and as a State Se­na­tor,” he said in a state­ment. “I look for­ward to shar­ing my vi­sion for the Com­mon­wealth fol­low­ing the Novem­ber elec­tions.”

Mean­while, Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling on Wed­nes­day an­nounced new staffers hired for his 2013 run. Boyd Mar­cus, a long­time GOP ad­viser who served as the chief of staff to for­mer Gov. James S. Gil­more III and the lead con­sul­tant in for­mer Gov. Ge­orge Allen’s runs for Congress and gov­er­nor, will serve as gen­eral con­sul­tant. Christie Heath, for­mer deputy sec­re­tary of the com­mon­wealth for Gov. Bob Mcdon­nell, will be Mr. Bolling’s fi­nance di­rec­tor.

“I look for­ward to com­pet­ing with Mr. Cuc­cinelli for the Re­pub­li­can Party’s nom­i­na­tion for Gov­er­nor,” Mr. Bolling said in a state­ment. “I in­tend to run a pos­i­tive and is­sue ori­ented cam­paign that fo­cuses on my qual­i­fi­ca­tions to serve as Virginia’s Gov­er­nor, as well as my record of pro­vid­ing main­stream con­ser­va­tive lead­er­ship that gets re­sults.”
