Bob McDonnell Blows Off CPAC?

Saturday, February 20, 2010

It sure sounds that way!
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, one the Republican Party's favorite new faces, has cancelled his Saturday appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference.


McDonnell will return to Washington on Sunday to attend the NGA dinner at the White House with President Obama. His office said he would try to stop by CPAC Friday if time permitted.

He was originally slated to address the CPAC audience on Saturday afternoon, after former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
Actually, McDonnell did stop by CPAC yesterday, but he didn't speak. I hear that his office is claiming he needed to head back to Richmond to work on "budget matters" for the day. Hmmmm, wonder how that excuse will wash at CPAC.
