Gov. Bob McDonnell in Afghanistan Meeting With VA Troops

Richmond, VA - Governor Bob McDonnell is in Afghanistan meeting with military commanders and Virginia troops.

He will visit an Army hospital in Germany before returning home this weekend.

While on this covert trip, the Associated Press tried to reach out to him about those undisclosed gifts from Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams.

Tuesday, McDonnell's private legal and communications team issued an apology on his behalf saying he had repaid more than $124,000 in loans from Williams.

The AP says McDonnell would not discuss the gifts, saying he would do interviews about that when he returns from overseas.
