Virginia Gov-elect Terry McAuliffe announced appointments of several members of his cabinet including, from second left, Paul Reagan, Chief of Staff, Ric Brown, Secretary of Finance, and Levar Stoney, Secretary of the Commonwealth.

Virginia governor-elect Terry McAuliffe is starting to build his new administration. With the election two weeks behind him, McAuliffe is now ready to start naming key positions in his new administration.

At a press conference today in Richmond, the governor-elect announced his new chief of staff will be Paul Reagan, who served as communications director for Gov. Mark Warner and chief of staff for Sen. Jim Webb. Deputy Campaign Manager Levar Stoney will be the new secretary of the commonwealth.

"The spoils of victory is to actually be in the government and to actually have a job in the government," says Kyle Kondik, analyst at the University of Virginia Center for Politics analyst. "So it's certainly common on both sides for people who were intimately involved in the campaign to sort of move over to governance."

McAuliffe also announced he'll will be keeping Ric Brown as Secretary of Finance in his administration, creating some amount of continuity with the outgoing administration of current Gov. Bob McDonnell.

Brown also held the position for McDonnell's predecessor, Gov. Tim Kaine.
