Shortly after Terry McAuliffe accepted his win as the new governor of Virginia, he met with current governor Bob McDonnell to gain insight into the new position.
Just like during all of McAuliffe’s previous meetings with powerful political leaders, McAuliffe took pages and pages of notes.
In an article in the Washington Post, McAuliffe is quoted as saying, “I did fill up many, many pages today in my notebook. I got a new one out for today, and it’s already half filled up.”
During the hour-long meeting, the current governor pledged to make McAuliffe’s transition as easy as possible. McAuliffe, who has never held elected office before winning the race on November 5, wants to gather as many nuggets of advice as possible.
