McDonnell headlines fundraisers for Corbett of Pennsylvania

Anita Kumar

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell will headline a pair of fundraisers Thursday and Friday for fellow Republican Tom Corbett, the Pennsylvania attorney general who is running for governor.

He will attend a Thursday afternoon event at the St. Clair Club Country Club in Upper St. Clair, Pa. The next morning, he will attend a Republican Governors Association event at the Duquesne Club in Pittsburgh, where proceeds will be given to Corbett's campaign. The RGA event is expected to bring in $430,000, according to Phil Cox, McDonnell's senior political adviser, but figures were not yet available for the other fundraiser.

Corbett held a fundraiser in Philadelphia for McDonnell when he was running for governor last year. This year, McDonnell has been assigned to Corbett through the RGA's mentoring program.

McDonnell held his first fundraiser for Corbett this summer at the home of Fred Malek, a major Republican donor who served as a finance chairman to Sen. John McCain in 2008 and now heads McDonnell's government reform commission.

Corbett first served as Pennsylvania attorney general from 1995 until 1997 when he was appointed by then Gov. Tom Ridge (R) to fill the unexpired term of Ernie Preate, who was indicted on federal charges of mail fraud. He was later elected in 2004 and 2008.
