Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) will attend the White House Correspondents Association dinner Saturday in Washington as the guest of the Christian Broadcasting Network.

It’s not McDonnell’s first turn on the Washington red carpet. He attended last year as a guest of Newsweek.

Others on the guest list include: Kate Hudson, Sean Penn, Bristol Palin and, oh yeah, the president. Check out the Reliable Source for all the latest happenings.
