Governor Holden appointed Norman B. Harty and Allison London Smith to the House and Senate redistricting committees.

The vacancies existed because Holden's original appointee, Representative Mark Richardson, withdrew his name from consideration.

And although it took a month, Democratic Senator Stephen Stoll says he supports Holden's actions.

Actuality:stoll
RunTime: 11 seconds
OutCue: "with the process."
Contents: Stoll says Holden took the right actions and said the choice was difficult because the Republicans played politics with the process.

These appointments don't need Senate confirmation, but the attorney general is suggesting it to avoid further conflict.
