McDonnell sidesteps race's national impact

Fresh off his election victory, governor-elect Robert F. McDonnell said he was "ready to work for the people of Virginia" but sidestepped questions of his victory's national implications for the Republican Party.

"I'm going to leave that up to other experts," he said. "I was just running hard."
