The Washington Post has this article about Bill Bolling, Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor. He was elected as a Republican in 2009 and, as the article describes, he is thinking seriously about running for Governor this year as an independent. Thanks to PoliticalWire for the link.

Although minor party or independent candidates for Governor have been elected since the end of World War II in the midwest, the west, and the east, no one other than a Democrat or a Republican has been elected Governor in a southern state since 1916, when the Prohibition Party nominee for Florida Governor, Sidney J. Catts, was elected.
