Attorney General-elect Ken Cuccinelli (R) has tapped two men who once held that post to help lead his transition effort.
Richard Cohen, who was appointed to fill out the remainder of Jim Gilmore’s term when he resigned to run for governor in 1997, and Andy Miller who held the office between 1970 and 1977, will help Cuccinelli move into the role.
Richmond attorneys Pat McSweeney and Bernie McNamee will also be a part of the transition team.
In a conference call with reporters Thursday, Cuccinelli said his first priorities are to hire staff and prepare his priorities for the upcoming legislative session.
Cuccinelli has already consulted with former attorney general and current Gov.-elect Bob McDonnell and with Bill Mims, who McDonnell appointed to the office earlier this year when McDonnell resigned to run for governor.
