McDonnell in mountains for PAC retreat

Gov. Bob McDonnell is capping the week in the mountains with donors, staff and others.

McDonnell’s Opportunity Virginia PAC is holding its fourth annual retreat at the Homestead, the tony Hot Springs resort, where about 80 people are expected to hobnob for a couple of days.

A McDonnell aide says guests pay for their own accommodations, but various programs are organized, including panel discussions.

The event has, in the past, drawn an array of lawmakers and this year, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker addressed the group, according to a McDonnell spokesman.
