McDonnell on Gustav and the RNC
I just got done with an interview from St. Paul with Attorney General Bob McDonnell. McDonnell is the front runner for the GOP nomination for Governor next year. He provides an interesting perspective on the situation the Republican party finds themselves in because he was just in New Orleans about a month ago, helping a family whose home was destroyed in Katrina.
McDonnell seemed confident that the Republicans would be able to have a rousing convention, while at the same time respecting the concerns for the people of the Gulf Coast. He also thought that it would provide an opportunity for Sen. John McCain to show he skills as a leader.
Tonight at 11, we’ll hear more from McDonnell about his experience in New Orleans and we will take a deeper look at the impact Gustav could have on the Republican National Convention.
Also, on the Democratic side, we’ll take a look at how the Obama campaign is turning their local campaign offices into drop centers for donations and supplies that will be sent to hurricane victims.
