McDonnell to star in educational video for children

Anita Kumar

Coming soon to 40,000 high school classrooms across the nation: Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell.

McDonnell will tape a 15-minute interview on what it's like to be governor while in Boston this week for the annual National Governors Association meeting.

He will be asked about the most important action taken during his term (all six months, so far), the differing roles of state and federal government, the National Guard and how to achieve campaign promises.

The video, organized by the Annenberg Public Policy Center, will include a handful of other governors.

On his two-day trip to Boston, which starts today, McDonnell will attend various NGAs' sessions, including one about achieving a sustainable health-care system. McDonnell has also agreed to serve as co-chairman of the group's education committee.

Thursday night, McDonnell will headline a fundraiser for the Massachusetts Republican party, with the proceeds helping Charlie Baker, the state's GOP gubernatorial candidate. Phil Cox, McDonnell senior political adviser, said the governor plans to attend another event for Baker in Washington in September.
