McDonnell will attend a reception with the former Massachusetts governor Thursday night at the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Washington and appear with him the next morning at a breakfast hosted by the Northern Virginia Technology Council and Consumer Electronics Association at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Reston.

McDonnell endorsed Romney on Jan. 20 and campaigned for him in South Carolina and Florida before those states’ primaries.

McDonnell, one of the most popular governors in the nation and a sometimes mentioned vice presidential possibility, appeared on a couple Sunday morning talk shows for Romney this weekend.

Romney, the national front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, has been in Virginia several times this cycle for fundraisers and to campaign for legislative candidates.

Only Romney and Rep. Ron Paul (Tex.) will appear on the Virginia primary ballot March 6, Super Tuesday, because the other candidates — former House speaker Newt Gingrich and former senator Rick Santorum (Pa.) — did not qualify.

Romney has announced a leadership team in Virginia that includes Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling and former governor James Gilmore.
