      AP: McDonnell Repays Williams' Loans, Apologizes

      Richmond, Va. (AP) - Gov. Bob McDonnell says he has repaid two loans made to his wife and a business he and his sister own from a major political booster who also has provided his family with thousands of dollars in gifts.

      In a statement from McDonnell's private legal and communications team, he also issued an extraordinary apology, "for the embarrassment certain members of my family and I brought upon my beloved Virginia and her citizens."

      McDonnell said the repayments, totaling more than $124,000, to Jonnie Williams, include principal and interest and settle both debts in full to the chief executive of trouble nutritional supplements maker Star Scientific.
