Presidential hopeful Gov. Rick Perry of Texas is headlining a lunchtime fundraiser for the Virginia Republican party Wednesday. The Washington Post’s Anita Kumar will be tweeting live from the luncheon.
Perry, who stepped down as head of the Republican Governors Association, will be joined by Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, who succeeded him at the RGA, at the convention center in Richmond. Perry is among those GOP hopefuls seeking McDonnell’s endorsement.
Republican officials asked Perry to appear before he announced his candidacy for president this month.
