All Eyes on the Virginia Governor’s Race

National attention is turning to Virginia, where voters will choose their new governor this November. According to RealClearPolitics, the Republican gubernatorial candidate, Bob McDonnell, has the momentum and is pulling away in the polls. Right now he’s up 50-43.

I spoke with Mr. McDonnell last night on the race, his plans for Virginia, and whether to some extent, the race is a hidden referendum on President Obama.

I was impressed with Mr. McDonnell—he’s a big positive surprise.
