Virginia Gov. McDonnell reelected RGA chairman

“I look forward to working with my colleagues over the next year to continue implementing good, fiscally responsible policy, and to working hard to build on the RGA's successes of 2009-2011 to add to the ranks of our 29 outstanding Republican governors,” McDonnell continued.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) promptly offered McDonnell “congratulations” via a tweet on Wednesday.

The popular Virginia governor took over as chairman of the RGA in August when Texas Gov. Rick Perry stepped down in order to run for the Republican presidential nomination.
