McDonnell Kicks Off Campaign
Former attorney general Robert F. McDonnell officially kicks off his campaign for governor this morning at a rally at an Annandale fire station. Several hundreds of supporters are expected to attend.
Later today, McDonnell will knock on doors on Wagon Wheel Road in the Mount Vernon section of Fairfax County to speak to potential voters on the street where he lived from age 8 until he left for college. He will then fly to Richmond, Virginia Beach and Roanoke.
Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) and others elected officials are expected to attend today's events. Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee will join McDonnell on Monday.
