McDonnell: It Would “Probably” Be Tough to Turn Down VP Offer


    Translation of this interview: if the Republican presidential nominee in 2012 asks Bob McDonnell to be his or her running mate, he’s doing it. The question is, would McDonnell step down as governor and hand it off to Bill Bolling, in part to help fulfill the deal the two of them cut to forestall a McDonnell-Bolling battle for the 2009 nomination. And, of course, in this scenario, the BIG question mark would be Ken Cuccinelli; would he take on then-Governor Bolling in a battle for the 2013 nomination, run for AG again, or something else?  Stay tuned…
