McDonnell calls Democratic governors chair
Of all the calls that Bob McDonnell has made since he was elected Virginia's next governor last week, this may be one of the most interesting:
McDonnell on Thursday phoned Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, a Democrat who just happens to lead the Democratic Governors Association.
You may recall that Schweitzer flew to Virginia and endorsed Terry McAuliffe in Virginia's Democratic gubernatorial primary. His group spent an unprecedented $6 million to try to defeat McDonnell.
"The Governor-elect has made it a priority to reach out to state and national leaders from both parties during the transition process,'' said Tucker Martin, McDonnell's spokesman.
