McDonnell's trip to the Sunshine State

By Anita Kumar

Following Sunday's adjournment of the legislative session, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell has headed to South Florida for a little R&R.

McDonnell, vice chairman of the Republican Governors Association, will also spend a little time mingling with supporters of both his 2009 campaign and the RGA.

On Friday, he will attend a lunch hosted by McLean attorney and McDonnell donor Kevin Fay at the famed Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables and then a dinner in Palm Beach hosted by prominent developer Eddie Garcia, according to Phil Cox, McDonnell top political adviser. Garcia, who has homes in Virginia Beach and Palm Beach, gave $25,000 to McDonnell's political action committee, Opportunity Virginia, according to the Virginia Public Access Porject, a non-partisan tracker of money in politics.

On Saturday night, McDonnell will host a thank-you reception for RGA donors in the area, Cox said.

Where are the jobs Bob?

Maybe if he'd spend a little less time on junkets and spoke to "real" Virginian's, this state would be better off. He's done ziltch to promote jobs so far.
