Northrop Grumman Plans to Relocate to Virginia

It is official; Northrop Grumman has decided to move their global headquarters to Virginia. It seems they were considering both DC and Maryland, but finally decided on Virginia.
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.
