McDonnell press conference

The RT-D covered Bob McDonnell's press conference yesterday:
"Look at Bob's track record and his credentials and what he accomplished in the General Assembly," Del. John M. O'Bannon III, R-Henrico, challenged reporters. Sen. Walter A. Stosch, R-Henrico, the majority leader of the state Senate, said McDonnell has both the business-management and legal acumen to head one of state's largest law firms -- the attorney general's office.

"Bob McDonnell has the background, business experience and proven record to help Virginia create and attract more jobs and promote a vibrant private sector," said Stosch, who ran an accounting firm for almost 40 years.
The article goes on to draw extensive comparisons between Del. McDonnell's and Sen. Deeds' legislative rankings. If you recall, we've made similar comparisons whenever people try to call Sen. Deeds a middle of the road Democrat.

This press conference is notable because it features Sen. Stosch, who supported Mr. Baril in the primary, and Del. O'Bannon, who I believe sat on the sidelines. It demostrates to me that the entire Republican party is united behind the ticket.

The real question is when will the Senate leadership hold a press event with Sen. Bolling?

We all know the division in this party is in the Senior Chamber of the General Assembly. It would be nice to see if they bury the hatchet and work together.
