McDonnell Makes Play for Veep Spot

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) plans to air "positive" television ads in the coming weeks "as he looks to bolster his approval ratings and remind viewers of Virginia's successes following a spate of bad publicity," the Washington Post reports.

McDonnell is term-limited and can't run for re-election in Virginia but the move indicates he's very serious about boosting his image in a key battleground state in advance of Mitt Romney's running mate selection.
