In a statement, Bolling said that he was disappointed in the committee's outcome but will not file a lawsuit to change course. "Based on discussions with our attorneys, it is my belief that the Committee's decision to change the mode of nomination in the middle of the campaign may also create significant legal questions. However, I have decided that it would not be in the best interests of the Republican Party to pursue a judicial remedy," said Bolling. So far, the only Democrat openly preparing for a gubernatorial campaign is former Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe. He has said he will run if Democratic Sen. Mark Warner opts to stay in Congress instead of return to the governor's mansion in Richmond. McAuliffe lost his party's nomination for governor in 2009, finishing second to the eventual nominee, state Sen. Creigh Deeds.
