Breaking: Politico's Martin claims Bolling will drop out of governor's race tomorrow

Politico's Jonathan Martin is reporting that Virginia's Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling will drop out of the GOP race for the nomination for Virginia's governor in 2013, leaving Ken "the Cooch" Cuccinelli a free path to the GOP nomination.

Update: Ben Tribbett appears to have broken the story an hour ago on Twitter.
