The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists announced its support last month for selling oral contraceptives over the counter without a prescription in the United States.

Republican Governors Association Executive Director Phil Cox issued the following statement in response to Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling’s decision to withdraw from the Virginia governor’s race:
“Bill Bolling is an honorable man who has always put the people of Virginia ahead of his political ambitions. His decision to step aside is a testament to his character and deep concern for the Commonwealth.
Republicans are now positioned to move forward united and focused on electing a results-oriented leader who will make job creation a top priority and build on the strong foundation set by Governor McDonnell.
Ken Cuccinelli is a proven candidate who knows how to win both statewide as well as in Northern Virginia. More importantly, his experience serving the citizens of Virginia as Attorney General will provide a favorable contrast to the extreme partisan record of former DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe.
While Ken has devoted his public life to making sure Virginia is a great place to raise a family and start business, Chairman McAuliffe has spent the last two decades as a Democratic fundraiser showing no interest in Virginia issues until running a losing campaign for governor.
Virginians want a governor they can trust and who is committed to the Commonwealth. Ken Cuccinelli is the only candidate for governor who fits that description.”
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal was elected chairman of the Republican Governors Association. He will be replacing the Governor of Virgina Bob McDonnell. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was also elected as vice chairman. Governor Jindal state “Governors are the future of the Republican Party and I am deeply honored to be elected chairman of the Republican Governors Association,” said Governor Bobby Jindal. “By implementing pro-growth, reform agendas, Republican governors are providing a roadmap for the GOP. I look forward to helping elect Republican governors in 2013 and 2014.” The following governors will make up the RGA’s executive committee:
