VA Gov. Bob McDonnell will head to Iowa next month to keynote the state GOP's annual Ronald Reagan Dinner, which is the state's major party fundraiser.
McDonnell, of course, is widely-seen as having presidential designs, and his socially conservative background (not to mention his haircut) would fit snugly with GOP caucus-goers.
If McDonnell runs, it'll be interesting to see whether he sells himself as a fiscal problem-solver (ala his gubernatorial run in 2009) or as a strong, social conservative. Of course, he'll try to be both depending on the context and state, but which perception will strike potential voters as truer?
