McDonnell to speak to the U.S. House Republican caucus

Anita Kumar

Gov. Bob McDonnell will speak to U.S. House Republicans Tuesday morning at the Capitol Hill Club, a GOP social club in Washington.

Phil Cox, McDonnell's senior adviser, said McDonnell will speak about running a model campaign and delivering on his campaign promises in his first six months in office.

Republicans, eager to duplicate McDonnell's success in the 2010 midterm elections, have been trying to line up the governor since his 17-point win over state Sen. R. Creigh Deeds in November.

McDonnell was supposed to speak to U.S. House Republicans in January at their annual retreat, "Winning Back America," in Baltimore, but canceled at the last minute because of an impending snowstorm that was supposed to leave as much as a foot of snow in parts of the state.

Tuesday night, McDonnell will headline a fundraiser for former state senator Dino Rossi, who is running against Democratic U.S. Sen. Patty Murray of Washington state at the Caucus Room in the District. Cox said McDonnell agreed attend the fundraiser at the request of Ed Gillespie, the former general chairman of his gubernatorial campaign, and views the seat as a possible pick up for a Republican.

what campaign promises?? He promised transportation fixes, but once elected, said we can't afford fixes, and instead is spending his term appealing to the religious right.

Bob McDonnell. Isn't he the right-wing governor who put arming untrained, undisciplined, uncontrolled anarchists ahead of education, health or human welfare?

Reminds an historian a lot of Europe in the 1930s.
