WASHINGTON (CNN) – Virginia gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell will deliver Saturday's weekly Republican radio address, the Republican National Committee confirmed Tuesday.
The address - usually delivered by a Republican member of Congress or sitting governor - will cap off a week that has thrust the Virginia race in the national spotlight. On Thursday, President Obama will make his first campaign appearance with Democratic candidate Creigh Deeds in the northern Virginia suburb of Tyson's Corner.
McDonnell has also campaigned and raised money with a bevy of national figures, including Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee and RNC chairman Michael Steele.
The race, considered the marquee political battle of 2009, is being fought over a number of national issues, particularly as McDonnell tries to link Deeds to the administration's contentious economic agenda.
And WHY is this news? NO one knows or cares about this guy.
Another huge liar spouting lies and hate! God, I've had it with the neanderthal rethuglicans!
It's only a small matter of time before we clean out the few remaining Conservatives in office and get this country on the right track again after Bush. Both sides of our Moderate Republican families jumped ship due to what the Republican Party has become lately.
Mr. McDonnell is trying to refuse stimulus money that our current governor, Tim Kaine along with Mr. Deeds are saying that we need. After the many years it took to turn the Old Dominion back blue, Mr. McDonnell has another thing coming if he thinks the people are turning this state back over to the crooks of the republican party.
Here's an advance copy of the transcript of his speech....
The future of the Republican Party can not be based on one man or woman, or the ability to scare the elderly with tactics used by the swift-boaters. We need a Republican Leadership that cares about the man and woman on Main Street, and not the $39 Million spent by the Healthcare Insurance Industry, all since April, with much of the money going to congressmen, senators, and state governors. I look forward to reviewing the campaign donation list for Bob McDonnell.
Oh Goody Maybe he will act normal. Maybe not!
Can we the people set up a protest outside the radio station..... U THINK
Here we go again CNN taking sides....
Who cares, the GOP doesn't want to listen to 63.7 million Americans.
"We learn! That when it come to CNN. All they do is side with Him...
HA! HA! HA!… Whew…. Republicans are starting to smell like the Party of Conservative Desperation and Panic.
I Hope he is about to deliver a republican alternative proposal to Pres Obama's Healthcare. If not, just consider it more of the same hot air spewed from the OUT OF TOUCH Republican Party to feed the base.
The virginian know the Democratic delivers chicken to every hosehold. The Republic deliver only " SOUP KITCHEN" to most household. Enough said.
That is great news, good going Bob.
By the way , all fellow northern virginians, President Obama will be appearing with Creigh Deeds in a public rally and fundraiser tomorrow Thursday the 6th . It is at the Mclean Hilton starting at 5:00. Come show your support.
Your title "GOP redirects calls to RNC" is misleading – did you mean to say "GOP redirects calls to DNC"?
It will cap off a week for most of the have nots do nothing , know nothing party all the while spending their time throwing wrenches and sporeading hate while only thinking of themselves to do anything they can to cause trou b le.
Last time I checked Social Security,Medicare,Veterans was a goverment ran agency .
I guess the Republicans have no credible members of Congress so they are going to the second team. I wonder if the governor will be more honest than the Congressional speakers? Probably not; after all he is a Republican.
Boy they are getting to the bottom of the list...
The GOP doesn't know who it is anymore!
The Virginia know the Democrat deliver Chicken to every household. The Republican only send people to "SOUP KITCHEN" as soon after take office. Said enough.
Cornyn: Obama is 'now looking like a mere mortal'
Obama always looked like a mere mortal i.e. a humble human. Unlike the republicans who looked like devilist immortals. That was the precise reason the immortal look-a-likes lost and mortal look-a-like won.
Let me guess, he's their next rising star....ha.
What has this got to do with anything...CNN is really carrying the republicans water. have you polled Fox viewers and you think you can pull some of them over with your one sided coverage??
I am so sick of Republicans and their obvious hatred toward anyone who doesn't look or think like they do. I hope non of them get elected for anything next election. God help us if they do because the "real America" will be lost.
Bob McDonnell will be a full time governor unlike Timmy Kaine.
