Virginia Lt. Governor, Bill Bolling said that Mitt Romney is the only Republican presidential candidate who can win in 2012, and that he will be chairman of Romney’s campaign in Virginia just as he was in 2008.
Bolling said its outcome “depends on how the economy performs” and that unless it improves, President Obama will have trouble carrying Virginia and winning re-election. Most of the potential GOP candidates “have a good story” to tell voters, Bolling said, but many of them can’t appeal to independent voters.
Only one Republican candidate can appeal to both the party’s base voters and to moderate and independent voters, “and that is Mitt Romney,” Bolling said.
