2012 Buzz: Bolton visits McDonnell
The still unsettled field of republican presidential candidates could be on the verge of adding yet another contender. Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton is making the rounds, seriously considering a run for the GOP nomination.
Today, Bolton was in Richmond and met for 30 minutes, one on one, with Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell.
According to McDonnell’s Director of Communications Tucker Martin, Bolton and McDonnell discussed the Governor’s record in Virginia, national public policy and other issues.
Martin said the two have spoken before and he described their visit as “friendly”.
McDonnell has ruled out any possibility of running for president himself, but is widely considered to be a front runner as a candidate for Vice President. A position he told me in February that he is open to.
