Democratic candidate for governor Terry McAuliffe issued the following statement on Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling's decsion to suspend his caqmpaign for governor:
"It is disappointing that more mainstream Virginia Republicans are being driven out of leadership by the far-right. Virginia voters have repeatedly made clear that they prefer mainstream leaders building consensus instead of politicians pursuing their own ideological agenda. I intend on running a campaign that will unite Virginians across parties who share my focus putting job creation and common sense fiscal responsibility above divisive partisan crusades."
