Gov. Bob McDonnell said Wednesday that he’s disappointed that Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli will not defend the statewide school division that McDonnell championed, but that he will vigorously defend the law.

“We’ll get private counsel that will do a great job,” McDonnell told reporters after an unrelated event. “We’re working out those details now between my staff and his staff and I intend to defend it vigorously, because I am not, on my watch, going to have young people in Virginia go to schools that continue to fail them.”
