Cuccinelli says he won’t run for governor in 2017

wlni-fbHARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) – Former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says he won’t run for governor in 2017. Cuccinelli told The Associated Press on Saturday at a state GOP convention that he had decided not to run. The outspoken conservative who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2013 said another gubernatorial campaign would be too taxing on his family life. If he’d decided to run, Cuccinelli could have been a formidable challenge to other 2017 GOP gubernatorial hopefuls – former Republican National Committee chairman Ed Gillespie and U.S. Rep. Rob Wittman. Cuccinelli has been a key campaign surrogate of presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam is expected to be the Democratic nominee.
