Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R), a Mitt Romney surrogate, said Sunday that the improving economic situation is thanks to Republican governors, not President Obama.
"Look, I'm glad the economy is starting to recover but I think it's because of what Republican governors are doing in their states. Not because of the president," McDonnell said on CNN's State of the Union.
"It's been a complete failure of leadership," he said of Obama.
McDonnell added that Romney is "on a roll" and that the electoral "math is lining up very well for" him after his resounding victory in Saturday's Nevada GOP contest.
