There’s another veepstakes list out. And yes, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell is on this one too.
The popular governor and chairman of the Republican Governors Association comes in second on The Fix’s 2012 veepstakes list after Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), but before Ohio Sen. Rob Portman.
“His 2009 gubernatorial campaign proved that if Republicans focused unswervingly on a jobs and the economy — ‘Bob’s for Jobs’ — message that they could win major elections in toss-up states,’’ the Fix writes.
So what about that whole transvaginal ultrasound issue?
“McDonnell’s recent involvement in a national controversy about trans-vaginal ultrasounds has drawn some negative attention to him but he remains a major player in the veepstakes.”
