(Because of a technical malfunction that crashed this site on April 4, and took down every post and comment after March 14, the following has been re-posted. It was originally written March 24, 2008.)  Several news organizations are reporting that Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling will announce at a 1:30 capitol news conference that he will not run for governor in 2009, but will run for re-election as lieutenant governor instead. We have contacted people with knowledge on his staff as to the accuracy of these reports and have received a "can neither confirm nor deny" response. We will attend the news conference and post details from it.
