McDonnell to meet with Senate leaders
We haven't heard much from Republican Bob McDonnell since he defeated Democrat Creigh Deeds nearly one month ago.
McDonnell has held a single press conference, named his transition staff and appeared at only a handful of public events. But the governor-elect continues to meet with many movers and shakers behind closed doors as he gets ready to name his new team and be sworn in Jan. 16.
This morning, he'll meet with the Senate's leaders -- Majority Leader Richard Saslaw, Democratic Caucus Chairwoman Mary Margaret Whipple and Charles Colgan, chairman of the powerful Finance Committee -- in Richmond.
McDonnell placed a call to the Senate Democratic Caucus Nov. 20 during its retreat in Portsmouth.
He previously met with the Senate's Republican leaders, Tommy Norment and Walter Stosch, spoke to the House Democrats and phoned House Republicans at their organizational meeting.
McDonnell asked each of the state's agencies this week for 15 items, including a list of projects, potential savings in efficiencies and top issues.
Tomorrow, McDonnell will announce his first round of appointments to his adminstration at a press conference at the Capitol.
