Maldonado Will Be Lt. Governor

Sacramento, CA — Abel Maldonado will be sworn in today as California’s Lt. Governor.

The Senate voted 25-7 to confirm Maldonado, the selection of Governor Schwarzenegger to replace John Garamendi. Last week Maldonado, a Republican Senator from Santa Maria, was also approved by the Assembly.

It was a change of course, as earlier Maldonado was rejected by the Assembly for his role in last year’s controversial budget debate.
