As Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell urges Congress and the White House to compromise over increasing the nation's borrowing limit to avoid the first ever default on federal debt, he's taking fire from the GOP right.
"I share Gov. McDonnell's exasperation with Washington's inaction and its potential effect on Virginia's bond rating, however on some issues there should be no compromise," Ms. Tucker wrote in her press release.
"I frankly feel that Gov. McDonnell's willingness to bless a retreat that includes tax hikes and an increase in the debt ceiling is just wrong," wrote Ms. Tucker, once the top aide to former House Speaker S. Vance Wilkins.
