Kaine, McDonnell make joint appearance

Anita Kumar

Republican Gov.-elect Bob McDonnell joined Democratic Gov. Tim Kaine for the announcement of a $200 million genetic research facility in Fairfax County this afternoon.

Kaine's office asked McDonnell if he would like to attend, according to McDonnell spokesman Tucker Martin.

It was the first time Kaine and his successor have appeared together since the Nov. 3 election, though the two spoke extensively on Nov. 4 after McDonnell easily defeated Kaine's choice for governor, Democrat Creigh Deeds.

Ignite Institute for Individualized Health, a nonprofit organization specializing in DNA research, will create 415 jobs in Northern Virginia over the next five years and would partner with Fairfax-based Inova Health System.
