McDonnell for president?
CNBC's Larry Kudlow encouraged Bob McDonnell to run for president in 2012 on an appearance Wednesday night, but Virginia governor's just smiled and laughed.
"I've got three-and-half more years as Virginia governor through 2013 and I plan to be here," he said. "I've got so much on my plate right now. I call it a decent start but I've got a lot to accomplish in Virginia. Thanks for the plug."
McDonnell, who sits on the executive committee of the Republican Governors Association and has been fundraising for GOP candidates nationwide, told Kudlow that several Republican governors will be running in 2012.
McDonnell was appearing on the Kudlow Report to talk about how Virginia balanced its budget without raising taxes, the subject of his op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday. He will appear on FOX News this afternoon.
