Washington (CNN) - Who should Mitt Romney choose as his running mate?

Washington (CNN) - Tuesday afternoon was a good example of the message war being fought each day by the Republican National Committee.

Washington (CNN) – Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell chided Rick Santorum on Monday for expressing concerns about women serving in military combat roles.

(CNN) - A fight over how best to improve the nation's economy emerged in the weekly presidential and Republican addresses Saturday as each side accused the other of obstructing economic progress for political gain.
President Barack Obama zeroed in on the payroll tax cut extension, which remains stuck on Capitol Hill after lawmakers failed to agree on terms of a 10-month extension earlier this week. Congress passed a two-month extension of the cut in December, but members of Congress and the president are loathe to continue extending the measure in 60-day increments.
(CNN) – Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia, who recently threw his support behind Mitt Romney, said Thursday he would consider a vice presidential run should he be offered the spot.

Washington (CNN) - Virginia's top Republican is backing former Sen. George Allen's bid to reclaim his old job in Congress.

(CNN) - Things are getting interesting in Virginia - Tuesday's state government elections secured a Republican majority in the state House of Delegates but the prized Virginia senate is proving more elusive for the GOP.
In the commonwealth of Virginia, which broke for President Barack Obama in 2008 but elected Republican Bob McDonnell governor in 2009, a Republican-led assembly would be a boon for the GOP.
