ASHLAND, Va. (WTVR) – During Saturday’s campaign rally in Ashland, Mitt Romney said he hoped that Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling would be the next Governor of Virginia. In doing so, Romney failed to recognize Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli – who also announced he was running for Governor.
After the rally at Randolph Macon, Romney’s staff clarified his remarks.
“There are a couple of guys in the race. I love them both. I want to see one of those guys take his [Gov. Bob McDonnell]place,” they quoted Romney as saying.
