A Long Talk With Gov. McDonnell



Text  



Over on the homepage, I have a long transcript of my Friday interview with Governor Bob McDonnell of Virginia, discussing the ultrasound bill that recently passed the Virginia state legislature, what his days are like now that he’s a surrogate for Mitt Romney, and his view on Virginia’s primary, its ballot-access laws, and whether the state could someday become a closed-primary state.

There was one other note I didn’t include in the transcript; McDonnell began by sharing his sadness at the passing of Andrew Breitbart (we chatted Friday morning).

“I’m just so sorry about Andrew,” McDonnell said. “I know you had a chance to get to know him some, I had got to know him a little bit over the past couple of years. It was really a shock.”
