Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, talked with Fox about Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell giving the GOP response to SOU:

“We’ve had a very good year. We’ve won the governor’s race in Virginia, the governor’s race in New Jersey, and now the Senate race in Massachusetts. And Bob McDonnell’s just been sworn in as a new governor with new plans for his state. And we thought the American people ought to begin to be introduced to him.”
