      Bob McDonnell's State of the Commonwealth speech will be his last

      RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Gov. Bob McDonnell gives his final State of the Commonwealth speech on the 2014 General Assembly's opening day.

      The speech is set for 7 p.m. Wednesday and can be seen on NewsChannel 8. The assembly convenes at noon.

      McDonnell spokesman Tucker Martin says the speech will run about 50 minutes and will mostly be a recap of the strides Virginia has made during the governor's four-year term.

      The Republican's term officially ends Saturday with the inauguration of Democrat Terry McAuliffe.
