The AFP on WREL: McDonnell for president?

Editor Chris Graham joins WREL’s “Online with Jim Bresnahan” for their weekly look at the latest news in Virginia politics.

The segment begins with a discussion of an interview done by the Washington Post of Gov. Bob McDonnell in which McDonnell sidestepped a question on whatever interest he might have in a spot on the Republican national ticket in 2012. Chris speculates that McDonnell would be a solid pick for the #2 slot on the ticket with his political and policy successes in Virginia to date.

The segment wraps with a review of the investigation of the Virginia Lottery’s use of a luxury box at a Washington Redskins game initiated by Rockbridge State Del. Ben Cline. Was the use of the box an abuse of state funds? Chris breaks down the story from the perspective of Cline and the response of Lottery officials.
