Cuccinelli will announce governorís run within days, GOP sources say
RICHMOND ó Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II (R) will reveal his plans next week to run for governor in 2013, according to well-placed Republican sources.

Cuccinelli, a tea party hero who garnered national attention for suing the federal government over the health-care law, expects to make a formal announcement after the legislative session in the spring, according to the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity so they could speak freely about his plans.

For months, the former state senator from Fairfax County had said he was considering running for reelection or against Sen. Mark R. Warner (D) in 2014. But in recent weeks, speculation had turned to a run for governor, possibly setting up a primary race against Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R).

Bolling, a social and fiscal conservative who has campaigned on kitchen-table issues, has the endorsement of Virginiaís popular governor, Robert F. McDonnell (R). In Virginia, governors cannot seek consecutive terms.
