Michelle Obama & Maureen McDonnell campaign against childhood obesity
Gov. Bob McDonnell didn't score an invite to see President Obama when he came to the state last week, but first lady Michelle Obama asked Maureen McDonnell to join her in Arlington yesterday.
Maureen McDonnell joined Michelle Obama to kick off an intiative against childhood obesity at the YMCA in Alexandria.
"Let me begin by thanking the new first lady in the room, Maureen McDonnell,'' Obama said yesterday. "We are going to have a great time working together. She is already very engaged and supportive of these initiatives. And since she's so close I am counting on her to work alongside me on some of these issues."
We wish we could tell you more about the event, but we learned about it after it was already over. The governor's press office said Virginia's first lady received a last minute invitation, and the media could not be notified before the event.
