Bob McDonnell, 2 for 2 in Major Endorsements This Week?


On Monday, a Republican who was following the governor’s race closely told me to keep an eye on two endorsements, the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce and the state’s Fraternal Order of Police.

Yesterday the Fairfax Chamber endorsed Republican Bob McDonnell. And this morning, word on the street is that Virginia’s Fraternal Order of Police are endorsing McDonnell as well. As Virginia Virtucon notes, the FOP may often endorse Republicans but not always; they endorsed Mark Warner in last year’s Senate race.
