McDonnell Reflects on the Year, Looks Ahead

Anita Kumar

Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell spent 45 minutes answering questions today in an end-of-the-year conference call with bloggers and a few journalists who contribute to blogs on newspaper websites, including washingtonpost.com.

McDonnell, a Republican, said he expects to announce in the next couple weeks 25 to 30 priorities for the upcoming legislative session, which begins Jan. 9. They will include mental health, immigration and homeland security reforms.

The funniest moment came when McDonnell, who expects to run for governor in 2009, was asked about potential gubernatorial rival Del. Brian J. Moran (D-Alexandria)'s new bill that would give more power to the Attorney General by directing his office to remove recalled toys from shelves and to consider the development of standards for toys in the state.

McDonnell joked that Moran might want to run for Attorney General but then quickly said that he thinks Moran has another office in mind, and complimented Moran for choosing a "politically savvy time" -- the Friday before Christmas -- to unveil his proposal.
