Governor-elect to name commerce secretary


Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia’s governor-elect is set to make another Cabinet appointment.

Democrat Terry McAuliffe has scheduled a news conference Thursday in Richmond to announce his choice for secretary of commerce and trade.

That will leave McAuliffe with just one more Cabinet position to fill — secretary of education.

McAuliffe will be inaugurated as Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell’s successor on Jan. 11.
