Cuccinelli, Bolling win down-ticket nominations

From NBC12 News

RICHMOND, Va. (NBC12) - State Senator Kenneth Cuccinelli won the Republican nomination for Virginia attorney general Saturday.

Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling beat out Patrick Muldoon, a lawyer who lost a 1996 bid for Congress.

Interim state GOP chairman Pat Mullins won the job for the next three years over Franklin County attorney Bill Stanley.

The convention nominated all three by acclamation when results showed lopsided votes.

Cuccinelli won the nomination on a first-ballot vote over former federal prosecutor John Brownlee and Arlington attorney Dave Foster.

Even Cuccinelli's supporters had expected at least two ballots to claim the majority vote that party rules require.

Ryan Nobles is at the convention and will have a complete report tonight on NBC12 news at 6.
