McDonnell elected vice chairman of the Republican Governors Association
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell was elected vice chairman of the Republican Governors Association at the organization's annual conference in San Diego.
"The solutions necessary to bring our nation out of this tough economy and into a new period of prosperity and achievement will be crafted, debated and implemented in our state capitols,'' McDonnell said in a statement. "That is why the work of the RGA is so critically important. Good politics makes good policy, and the RGA combines effective practical politics with innovative and visionary policy development."

The rest of the executive committee will be:
Gala Chairman -- Gov. Bobby Jindal (La.)
Recruitment Chairwoman -- Gov. Nikki Haley (S.C.)
