Special election for Cuccinelli's seat set for Jan. 12
Gov. Tim Kaine's office reports that it has now received a copy of a letter from Sen. Ken Cuccinelli, indicating that he will resign from the state Senate on Jan. 12, in preparation for his inauguration as state attorney general Jan. 16.
Kaine plans to call the special election to fill Cuccinelli's Fairfax County seat for that same day, said Kaine spokesman Gordon Hickey.
Cuccinelli, meanwhile, met with the entire staff of the attorney general's office this week, telling attorneys and others in a 15-minute speech that he respects their work and looks forward to working with them. All employees of the AG's office formally work at the pleasure of the sitting attorney general. It is not yet clear how many of the office's staff Cuccinelli plans to keep on.
