He expressed his disappointment with the Virginia Republican Party's decision to nominate its 2013 candidates through a convention, rather than a statewide primary.
The issue was brought up by a student from Fairfax County, who is attending the conference.
"There are people who will live to regret this decision," said Bolling. "This makes us appear as a party of exclusion, rather than a party of inclusion."
Bolling worries that a convention nominating process will disenfranchise the average voter by limiting the decision to a smaller group of constituents.
Political observers say a convention will favor Bolling's opponent, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.
Bolling said that while he disagrees with his party's decision, he plans to press forward with his campaign for Governor.
"We intend to win." Bolling said.
