Lt. Governor Bill Bolling in Roanoke at 2013 Business Appreciation Week Breakfast
Lt. Governor Bill Bolling was the keynote speaker at the 2013 Business Appreciation Week Breakfast hosted by the Roanoke County Office of Economic Development Thursday. He took questions following the breakfast and was candid about the future of the Republican Party and his own future.
Bolling formed the Virginia Mainstream Project (VMP), a PAC and think tank that will advise and recruit mainstream conservative Republican candidates. Shortly after the breakfast a press release was issued with his endorsement and financial support for multiple Republican candidates.
VMP has endorsed the following candidates:
House District 15 – Todd Gilbert
House District 28 – Bill Howell
House District 29 – Beverly Sherwood
House District 33 – Joe May
House District 54 – Bobby Orrock
Bolling said, “The Virginia Mainstream Project supports candidates who understand what it takes to govern Virginia effectively, candidates who will keep their focus on responsible public policies to control spending, create a pro-business environment in Virginia and find bi-partisan solutions to the most important issues facing our state. I am pleased to give my support and the support of VMP to these candidates, who have proven throughout their public service careers that you can stand strong for conservative values and work with Republicans and Democrats to actually get things done in Richmond.”
VMP is airing 60 second radio ads on behalf of Bobby Orrock and Beverly Sherwood in their local markets. The radio ads featuring Lieutenant Governor Bolling can be found by clicking here and here.
Bolling also announced his support for Scott Taylor in his campaign for the Virginia House of Delegates in the 85th district. Bolling said, “Scott Taylor is the kind of mainstream conservative leader the people of the 85th district need to represent them in Richmond. Scott has a distinguished career serving his county as a U.S. Navy Seal. In addition, as a small business owner, Scott has the experience that is necessary to make certain that we advance pro-growth policies that will support small businesses in Virginia.”
Last month the VMP and Bolling endorsed and financially supported John Cosgrove’s State Senate campaign ahead of his win in the May 9th firehouse primary.
