After addressing supporters at a rally in historic Jefferson Hall on the grounds of the University of Virginia, former Virginia Attorney General Bob McDonnell, who is traveling around the state this week to kick off his campaign for governor, spoke to print and broadcast journalists. He had time to answer three questions.
The first question was about how he thinks the money allocated to Virginia in the federal stimulus package should be spent.
The second question was about so-called "card check" legislation, under consideration as the Employee Free Choice Act. McDonnell said he opposes the bill and supports Virginia's status as a "right to work" state.
The third question aimed to get McDonnell's assessment about the Republican party's chances for success in 2009. McDonnell noted that Virginia and New Jersey are the only states with significant elections this year, and that his focus is on getting elected as governor of Virginia.
