The Governor said he did not discuss V-M-I's request for additional funding today with Superintendent Josiah Bunting.
But he DID say he wants to help, and he believes the taxpayers would accept SOME additional expense.
The Supreme Court ruled June 26th that V-M-I cannot continue to accept state funds without opening its enrollment to women.
One of the ironies is: it will almost certainly cost the state more to comply with the court order.

((Despite winning two Congressional General Elections... Sixth District Representative Bob Goodlatte is campaigning on some unfamiliar territory.
In his first re- election bid in 1994, he ran unopposed.
So now for the first time as an INCUMBENT, Goodlatte faces competition.
And not just from a Democrat, but from a Libertarian candidate as well.
But he says he's doing nothing different during this campaign.
He says he's just focusing on the key issues, like a balanced budget agreement.

RUNS=:13

Medicare is also one of the issues Goodlatte is stressing.
He's been accused by his challengers of voting for cuts in the program.
But Goodlatte says nothing could be further from the truth.

RUNS=:12
OUT Q=or form


During this campaign... Goodlatte is ALSO pointing to his Congressional accomplishments.
Notably... getting Southern Virginia College back on track and pushing for a couple of new Federal highways for the area.
But the potential interstates have gotten him in trouble with some environmental groups.
In fact, the League of Conservation Voters gave him a rating of zero on a one hundred point scale. Stand up
Goodlatte has a distinct advantage over his opponents when it comes to campaign funds.
According to the most recent reports... the incumbent has raised nearly 600- thousand dollars-- more than twice the amount of his challengers combined. End stand up
One way he's done it is through big money, fundraiser dinners... like this one a few weeks ago at the Hotel Roanoke.
But on that night, his campaign suffered somewhat of a set back.
Goodlatte invited Sonny Bono-- the entertainer turned Congressman from California.
During the dinner, Bono raised eyebrows when he said the U- S uses hit squads to support the Haitian government... comments Bono couldn't back up.

((THAT'S CERTAINLY NOT MY POINT OF VIEW. AND I THINK IT'S INAPPROPRIATE FOR HIM TO MAKE THAT KIND OF REMARK. ))

Goodlatte calls the Bono debacle just "a minor stumbling block."
He believes his accomplishments and goals are voters think are important.
And he says that will propel him to his third term in office.
Our candidate profiles continue Friday.
We'll profile Bob Goodlatte's Democratic challenger, Jeff Grey, in this, his first political endeavor.
