Governors current and future prepare for Christmas
Did any of you in Richmond see Gov. Tim Kaine out at the mall this morning? He was hoping to see you.
In his final "Ask the Governor" appearance on WTOP this week, Kaine told host Mark Seagraves that he'd gone out to start his Christmas shopping during the snowfall on Saturday, but didn't plan on finishing up until this morning.
"I went out Saturday in the middle of the blizzard," he said. "I hadn't started my Christmas shopping yet and I was going to shop no matter what the weather was. So, I took a couple of my kids and we went to one of the malls in Richmond and we were pretty lonely out there. It was a day when I know the retailers were really planning on heavy sales and very few people were willing to get out in the snow."
Kaine went on: "I'm going to be out there again, I'm still not done. I'm going to be out there again, probably, Christmas eve day a little bit in the morning. I'm hoping I see a lot of people out there."
According to his public schedule, Kaine will be spending the holiday with his family and has no more public events scheduled until after Jan. 1.
Gov.-elect Bob McDonnell, meanwhile, was to serve lunch today at homeless shelter in Richmond. His office said his holiday plans included time with his immediate family and Mass this evening.
