McDonnell stumps for Romney in Virginia, Wisconsin

Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R) plans to do lots of presidential politicking this week — on behalf of Mitt Romney and perhaps his own aspirations somewhere down the line.

On Tuesday, McDonnell will zip around Wisconsin as a Romney surrogate, visiting Al’s Burger Joint in Green Bay, a campaign office in Appleton and attending a dinner for supporters in Green Bay.

On Thursday, McDonnell heads to Salem, N.H., to campaign for Ovide Lamontagne, a Republican in a tight race for governor.

That’s McDonnell’s job as head of the Republican Governors Association. But it never hurts a politician with national aspirations to mix and mingle in an early primary state.
