This evening Governor McDonnell said in a statement:
"The foremost priority of our administration is creating new jobs and getting our economy back on track. Today's announcement that Northrop Grumman, a Fortune 100 company, is moving to Virginia is a major step forward in this effort. Northrop Grumman and the Commonwealth of Virginia have long shared a close and positive working relationship,"
The Governor and company officials are planning a press conference tomorrow to discuss the transition and what it means for the company and Virginia.
