RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's Republican run for governor has a campaign manager.

The appointment of Dave Rexrode was announced on Monday. He is the former executive director of the Virginia Republican Party and has run several successful state and congressional races.

Cuccinelli became the presumptive GOP nominee for governor after Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling announced he would not seek the party's nomination.

Bolling has not ruled out an independent run.
