Governor-elect Terry McAuliffe is turning to a one-time rival to fill one of his key cabinet posts.

Former delegate Brian Moran will lead the Department of Public Safety. Moran and McAuliffe faced each other in a bitter primary fight four years ago, an election that was ultimately won by state Sen. Creigh Deeds, who lost to Republican Bob McDonnell in the general election.

Moran was a prosecutor in Arlington County for seven years before becoming a state delegate representing Alexandria. Until recently, he served as chairman of the Democratic Party of Virginia. He is currently in private practice.

Both McAuliffe and Moran said that gun violence would be a priority in the next four years. McAuliffe supported some gun-control measures during the campaign.
