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

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.
