Gov. Mike Huckabee today appointed Gunner DeLay to be prosecuting attorney in Sebastian County. DeLay will fill the 12th Judicial District seat recently vacated by Stephen Tabor, who will serve out the unexpired term of Sebastian County Circuit Judge Jim Marchewski.
DeLay was this year's Republican nominee for attorney general and was soundly defeated by Democrat Dustin McDaniel.
Today's appointment is a nice consolation prize for DeLay, because Tabor was just re-elected to a full term as prosecuting attorney earlier this month.
