Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling is among the state’s Republican leaders expressing concern over the party’s candidate to succeed him. In Roanoke County today, Bolling said E.W. Jackson is entitled to his views, but he is not entitled to insult people. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.
Bolling has created an organization to support what he calls “mainstream conservative” candidates. His Virginia Mainstream Project” is supporting candidates in several contested Republican primaries this month and buying radio ads for some of them. Bolling says Republicans are losing support from too many moderates.
Bolling was in Roanoke County this morning for a business appreciation event.
