I met the AG last year at the Blogs United in Martinsville event. I was leaving the Hampton Inn as he was arriving. I spoke to him for a good 15 minutes and he was the first to sign the quilt we presented to Alton Foley.The McDonnell 2009 campaign is up and running. I guess you never can start early enough. On a personal note, I really was hoping that if Warner retired the AG would seek his seat. I would love to have his conservative vote in the senate. I must add that Bill Bolling signed the quilt also. Alton has said that "The next Governor of Virginia signed his quilt" and I agree.
