    That Bolling may well run as an independent..which would likely split the Republican vote, helping Terry Mac pull out a victory.

      Yeah, he's pissed at Cucinelli, but he's not going to cross over to the Democratic Party ever.  If he runs as an independent, he'll be screwed with the Republicans for good, and he doesn't have any national pull (he was Romney's campaign chair here in VA, and within Republican circles, he's being blamed for Romney's loss here to a certain degree).

      He'd be the one to take a run at Warner in 2014 if Cucinelli wins the governorship, at least prolonging his campaign career if he stays within the party.
