Va Gov. Bob McDonnell raising money for Marco Rubio



Virginia's top two Republicans, Gov. Bob McDonnell and Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, will headline a fundraiser next month for Marco Rubio. 

Bolling adopted Rubio's proposal to travel the state and gather ideas from residents at meetings he dubbed idearaisers. Rubio published those ideas in a book called 100 Innovative Ideas for Florida's Future and pushed for many of them in his first year as speaker. Randy Marcus, Bolling's chief of staff, said the two men met recently when Bolling flew to Florida last month.
