McDonnell holds first meeting with Virginia congressional delegation
Newly elected Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell will meet with Virginia's congressional delegation for the first time today on Capitol Hill.
McDonnell decided to go to Washington for his first meeting with the 13-member delegation -- consisting of Sens. Jim Webb and Mark Warner (both Democrats) and eleven House members (six Democrats and five Republicans) -- but plans to invite the members to Richmond this summer.
The 90-minute meeting that will take place in House Minority Whip Eric Cantor's office will be focused on issues such as education, energy and the Chesapeake Bay, as well as promoting federal and state cooperation, the governor's aides say.

Earlier this month, McDonnell had his first individual meetings with Webb, Warner and Cantor and U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf, both Republicans. They spoke about jobs, educations and energy. In the coming weeks, McDonnell expects to meet one-on-one with the remaining members of the delegation.
