McDonnell forms 'Opportunity Virginia' committee
Gov. Mark Warner had "One Virginia." Gov. Tim Kaine had "Moving Virginia Forward." Now it looks like Gov. Bob McDonnell will have "Opportunity Virginia," a committee established to advance McDonnell's political goals, including by raising money and contributing to other Republican office seekers.
Via the Virginia Public Access Project comes word that the paperwork organizing the new PAC was filed with the State Board of Elections Thursday, with McDonnell's campaign office listed as the committee's address and McDonnell staffer Jane Wortham listed as treasurer. According to the form, the committee could take part in statewide, local and General Assembly elections.
"Opportunity Virginia will enable the governor-elect to assist other candidates and leaders who share his positive vision for creating jobs, keeping taxes low and providing new opportunities for all citizens," McDonnell spokesman Tucker Martin said.
