McDonnell meets with congressmen on Capitol Hill

Anita Kumar

Virginia's new governor Bob McDonnell paid his first visit to Capitol Hill today to meet with some of the state's congressional delegation at their offices.

McDonnell had 30-minute meetings with U.S. Sens. Mark R. Warner and Jim Webb, both Democrats, and U.S. Reps. Eric Cantor and Frank Wolf, both Republicans.

They spoke about jobs, educations, energy, the governor's aides say.

In the coming weeks, McDonnell expects to meet with the remaining nine members of the congressional delegation.

The Governor ought to be in Richmond developing a comprehensive proposal dealing with the $4 billion hole in Virginia's budget. The shortfall is not going to be met with 30 minute meetings or political speeches surrounded by cheerleaders.

Governor McDonnell, you campaigned, quite well. You were elected. Now, govern -- present a budget.
