Va. Gov. McDonnell Endorses Romney

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell endorsed Mitt Romney for the GOP presidential nomination on Friday, ahead of Saturday's South Carolina primary.  

“Mitt Romney has been an effective leader his entire life, in business, the Olympics and as governor,” McDonnell tweeted before scheduled appearances on several cable news networks.


The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported that the endorsement was not surprising. McDonnell is chairman of the Republican Governor’s Association and likely to endorse someone with experience in the governorship.

Only Romney and Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, will appear on Virginia’s primary ballot, due to the state’s strict requirements for raising signatures.
