And you thought there was bad blood between the two Republicans running for Virginia governor in 2013. Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II has a trip out of town this weekend, and Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling’s office has gone to the trouble of issuing a statement wishing him well.
“We congratulate Mr. Cuccinelli for his opportunity to speak in Iowa Saturday,” said Bolling spokeswoman Ibbie Hedrick, referring to Cuccinelli’s plan to headline a Lincoln Day dinner in Des Moines.
“In fact,” the statement went on to say, “we would be pleased to help his office with scheduling as many out of state speaking engagements for him as possible over the next year. While Mr. Cuccinelli is in Iowa, Lieutenant Governor Bolling will be delivering the commencement address at Radford University and hosting a fundraiser for [former governor and Republican Senate hopeful] George Allen in Bowling Green, both of which are located within the Commonwealth of Virginia.”
