McDonnell, Cantor to vote together

Anita Kumar

Look who's heading to the polls together Tuesday morning.

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and Rep. Eric Cantor -- the congressman who many think will be the next House majority leader if Republicans win control of that chamber -- will vote at Rivers Edge Elementary School outside Richmond.

But wait -- doesn't McDonnell live in the heart of Richmond in the historic Executive Mansion?

Actually, McDonnell and Cantor lived only a few houses away in the Glen Allen neighborhood until McDonnell moved into the governor's mansion in January.

McDonnell still owns the house and maintains his voter registration at that address, but plans to change it for the next election, his spokesman said. (State law says Virginians must vote where they reside except in rare cases when a person moves temporarily and is allowed to maintain a previous address for voting until the next general election for federal office.)

McDonnell's wife, Maureen, and Cantor's wife, Diana, used to go walking together in the mornings.

Former attorney general Jerry Kilgore (R) also used to vote at the same precinct.

The McDonnells and the Cantors are expected to vote at 9:30 a.m.
