Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, a Republican, has decided not to run for governor next year and instead will seek reelection. That means that Attorney General Bob McDonnell is the likely Republican candidate for governor in 2009, although it will be interesting to see if a primary challenger emerges to McDonnell's right.

If McDonnell supports higher taxes (or something similar) when the Virginia legislature returns for a special session on transportation funding later this year, I'd be surprised if his path to the nomination is uncontested.
