GM’s CEO Whitacre heading to D.C. on Wednesday, will he fly or drive?

UPDATE: Just before going to D.C. GM Chairman and CEO Ed Whitacre will hold a press conference at the company’s Fairfax, Kansas Assembly Plant.

General Motors’ CEO Edward Whitacre Jr. will make his first trip to Capitol Hill on Wednesday since taking the leading position at the Detroit automaker. Whitacre, who become permanent CEO of GM in January, will meet with Michigan’s congressional delegation during his visit to Capitol Hill.

According to the Detroit News, Whitacre’s aides have reached out to congressional leaders to schedule meetings.

A GM spokesman declined to comment on Whitacre’s visit.

All we want to know is if Whitacre will drive the Volt to D.C. or take a private jet? And if he’s taking a jet, will AT&T be paying for the trip?
