McDonnell spends the week in California, Colorado

Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) is spending the week out west.

Monday and Tuesday, he is holding economic development meetings in California (though his office won't disclose with whom.)

Tuesday through Friday, he'll be at the Republican Governors Association annual conference in San Diego.

McDonnell and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the two governors elected in 2009, will teach a new governors school on transition, said Phil Cox, McDonnell's senior political adviser. McDonnell will also give lectures on energy and how good policy equals good politics, give remarks at "A November to Remember" banquet and serve as master of ceremonies at the Southern governors luncheon, Cox said. He also plans to talk one-on-one with a number of newly elected governors.

McDonnell's friend, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, who just won re-election, is expected to be tapped the RGA's new chairman. McDonnell is a member of the group's executive committee.

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, he'll attend the National Governors Association 2010 seminar for new governors in Colorado Springs. McDonnell is leading two sessions -- "making the most of the transition" and "managing your staff and cabinet" along with Delaware Gov. Jack Markell (D), said Stacey Johnson, a McDonnell spokeswoman.

Is my Gov being paid while he's out for two weeks?

I sure hope not. And who paid for his flights? He better not be having my taxes pay for his extravagant outings.
