The Score

This Week: Bolling rolls, downtown illuminates, Christmas parades + more.


-3 Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling ends his campaign for governor, expressing disappointment in the Virginia GOP and refusing to endorse fellow Republican candidate, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. Bro just ain't got a smooch for the Cooch.

+5 Thousands of holiday lights are turned on in downtown Richmond, drawing hordes of holiday revelers to the Grand Illumination. Many of them follow the holiday cheer into Shockoe Bottom for the Grand Intoxication.

+7 Floats, bands, balloons and bystanders turn out to Broad Street for the 29th annual Dominion Christmas Parade. No reindeer, either living or inflated, were harmed this year.

+3 NBC-12 reports on the fire department rescue of a construction worker who falls about 20 feet while working on an elevator shaft in Short Pump. He broke his leg going down, but otherwise says things are looking up.

-4 VCU women's volleyball coach James Finley says he was fired from his job at the university because he is openly gay. Apparently a sport involving lots of spandex and knee-high socks is just no place for a gay man.
