Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell's predecessor Tim Kaine is running for the United States Senate against former Virginia Governor George Allen who is trying to regain the seat he lost to Jim Webb in 2006.
But McDonnell said he has no interest in running for Senate, in an editorial board meeting with the Washington Examiner.
"100 people that spend more time talking than acting, with an irresponsible filibuster rule, can't pass the budget in three years," McDonnell said."Going from being governor of Virginia, Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson's jobs to that club has very little appeal to me."
"Plus I've talked to George Allen and Mark Warner," he joked.
