Gov. Bob McDonnell will replace Rick Perry as head of the Republican Governors Association.

With Texas Gov. Rick Perry now in the Republican presidential field, Virginia's Gov. Bob McDonnell takes over for Perry as head of the Republican Governors Association.

The RGA made the announcement this morning, two days after Perry formally announced his candidacy. McDonnell had been the RGA's vice chairman. ?? The governor's new post puts more demand on his time for travel across the country, supporting GOP gubernatorial candidates. It also elevates the governor's profile as a possible vice presidential running mate.

Politico reports McDonnell said in an interview he would be "very interested" in joining a Republican ticket though he added that he has the best job in America.
