Terry McAuliffe Takes Oath As VA's 72nd Governor

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - One of Virginia's inaugural traditions is a small ceremony to turn the Executive Mansion keys over to the new occupants.

A Democrat is moving in and a Republican moving out, but some things won't change much.

Gov. Bob McDonnell said he was "honored to turn the reins over to another Irish Catholic family with five kids." McDonnell presented the key to successor Terry McAuliffe minutes before the Democrat was sworn in.

McAuliffe's five children attended the ceremony. After the exchange, McAuliffe walked across the hall to pose for pictures with eight former governors.
