Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe’s campaign travels for his long-time friend and political patron Hillary Clinton are coming under scrutiny by a Clinton watchdog group concerned that taxpayers could be stuck with the bill.

The super PAC America Rising has filed Freedom of Information Act requests with the Democrat’s office seeking information on trips since he became governor in January 2014. They are broad requests for details about his travel on private and state-owned aircraft as well as his travel partners.

America Rising said the request was prompted by an unannounced trip McAuliffe made to New York last month to attend a U2 concert where Bill and Hillary Clinton were lauded. The trip was not included in McAuliffe’s public calendar.
