McDonnell headlines “presidential town hall” in South Carolina

with one comment

Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell is not running for president, in fact he hasn’t even endorsed a candidate for president, but this weekend the republican will be in a hotbed of political activity as he headlines a town hall in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

McDonnell will be the guest of Rep. Tim Scott. Scott has invited every single major republican candidates for president to his district to discuss the presidential race and in particular South Carolina’s role in the process. His last guest, was the race’s current front runner, Mitt Romney.

This is a high profile slot for McDonnell, who is still waiting to endorse and is considered a prime candidate for Vice President. In a release, Scott eludes to those possibilites.

“While Governor McDonnell is not currently a candidate for President, he will play a key role in the 2012 election and beyond.” Scott said. “He has a proven record of job creation and keeping taxes low in Virginia – a state the GOP must win in 2012.  Our voters are eager to hear his views on the Presidential field, and on how we will defeat President Obama.”

McDonnell meanwhile heaped praise on Scott, a rising GOP star.

“Tim is a leading voice in the new wave of bold and innovative conservative leaders who are committed to getting our nation’s economy back on track and our fiscal house in order,” he said.

If you happen to be making a winter jaunt to the beach this weekend and would like to check out McDonnell on the stump, the details are below:

  1. …very smooth politics by Governor McDonnell. Right place, right time for perfect exposure. Our Governor may visit Myrtle Beach in January but he won’t stay long. The nature of SC politics are different from Virginia and Governor/Vice President hopeful McDonnell knows it. Personally, I find him a far more electable President than the current group of national Republican candidates
    .
    As far as SC goes; Governor Romney will do okay but he lives wayyy to far north of SC to score well. Representative Paul may be enticing to a lot of voters but the electorate at large, IMHO, finds him just a bit too unsettling. Speaker Gingrich will also do well, but with so many choices, you’re slice of pie can only be so big. Senator Santorum is great candidate but largely unknown. Sadly, the balance of the candidates are largely cannon fodder; absolutely no disrespect entended at all.

    So I hope Governor McDonnell enjoys himself in South Carolina this weekend but hopefully he remembers the way home to Virginia. After all, you don’t need GPS to see we are closer to Washington (the intended target) then the Palmetto state…
