FROM DC: McDonnell: 'I'm not holding my breath for a Washington Post endorsement'

More of Bob McDonnell's interview with our editorial board this week. In this audio clip, McDonnell again criticizes the Post's coverage of the race, with one of his aides chiming in to suggest that his editorial board meeting with that newspaper might come later rather than sooner. McDonnell suggests that Creigh Deeds, whose yard signs in the primary election included the newspaper's logo, was planning to use the same signs again in late October.

McDonnell also compares the Post coverage with an editorial earlier in the year that praised his performance as Attorney General.
