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.
