Veepstakes: Virginia, McDonnell get polished in new ad

It doesn't hurt to make your state -- and yourself -- look as good as possible right when the nominee for your party is trying to pick a No. 2, especially when your job runs out in a year.

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell's PAC, Opportunity Virginia, is up with a new ad, promoting what's to love in Virginia (and who's been in charge).

But it was just last week that McDonnell denied to NBC's Chuck Todd on MSNBC's The Daily Rundown that his PAC would soon be going up with ads.

"You can't believe everything you read in the papers," McDonnell said. "We don't have any plans at this point."

He added, “We're always looking for ways to get out the positive message of Virginia," but then later said: “I don't know where those reports have come from."
