On Tuesday, McDonnell (R) will travel to Ohio, where he will headline a fundraiser for Gov. John Kasich in Columbus.

The next day, McDonnell will attend a fundraiser for Rob McKenna, attorney general and Washington gubernatorial candidate at AOL headquarters in Northern Virginia.

McDonnell, chairman of the Republican Governors Association, will be helping candidates in 11 gubernatorial races this year, much as he has in past elections.

In the last couple of years, McDonnell has been active in helping elect candidates across the nation, serving as a surrogate for GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney and speaking at events nationwide.
