Mims in as # 2 in AG office

AP is reporting the following:

Republican Sen. Bill Mims to oversee attorney general's office RICHMOND, Va. Republican Bob McDonnell stepped into his role as newly elected Virginia attorney general today by announcing his first appointment -- naming Loudoun Senator Bill Mims chief deputy attorney general. Mims will oversee a staff of roughly 280 and manage the day-to-day operations of the Office of the Attorney General. He replaces Bernard McNamee, who will return to private practice. The G-O-P senator will announce next week when he'll leave the House of Delegates. He officially begins his new position on January 14th, when McDonnell is sworn in. The forty-eight-year-old Mims is a Harrisonburg native and an alumnus of the College of William and Mary. He is a practicing attorney with the Leesburg firm of Mims, Atwill and Leigh. A statewide recount this week of the state attorney general's race upheld McDonnell's win over Democrat Creigh Deeds. The margin of victory was 360 votes.
