RICHMOND – Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling today announced the addition of three members to his gubernatorial campaign. These new additions to the Bolling for Governor campaign will join the Political and Finance departments.

"I've been very pleased by the strong pledges of support that my campaign for Governor has received over the past several months from Virginia's business and political leaders, as well as grass roots Republicans from all across our Commonwealth", Bolling said. "These people understand that I am a mainstream, conservative leader who has a record of working with Republicans and Democrats to get things done in Richmond, and that's the kind of leadership we need to build a better Virginia. I am pleased that my campaign team continues to grow, and by adding these experienced and accomplished leaders to our team we will do even more to effectively communicate our message to all corners of the Commonwealth."
