Bob McDonnell to Step Down as Governor in Two Weeks

"This morning I announced I will step down as your attorney general to become a full time candidate for governor of Virginia."

This move will enable Bob McDonnell to focus all his time and energy on the governors race, without compromising the important work that is done in the Attorney General's office.  Most importantly it will allow him to fundraise, something he is unable to do as an elected official during the legislative session.  As far as a replacement, the Virginia state legislature will pick his replacement, and McDonnell is hoping it will be Chief deputy attorney general William C. Mims.
