RICHMOND, Va. -

Virginia voters are giving republican Governor Bob McDonnell high marks, despite an FBI investigation.

A new Washington Post poll finds 64% of all registered Virginia voters approve of the job McDonnell is doing.

The numbers are surprising to some because of an FBI probe into McDonnell and a top campaign donor who paid for catering services at McDonnell’s daughter's wedding.
McDonnell says there's a lot he wants to say about the situation, but can't because of the ongoing investigation

McDonnell is not running for re-election.
