Ahnold Appoints Republicans as Cabinet Secretary and Deputy Chief of Staff

That didn't take long:

SACRAMENTO - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Friday named a former GOP assemblyman as his new cabinet secretary, a move seen as crucial within the Republican Party to balance the governor's earlier appointment of a Democratic activist as his chief of staff.

He also announced creation of a new position, deputy chief of staff and senior adviser for policy development, filling it with a Republican operative.

The moves were praised by the California Republican Party, which had received angry protests from grassroots organizers when Schwarzenegger named Susan Kennedy, an aide to former Democratic Gov. Gray Davis, as his chief of staff.

[...]

[GOP Spokeswoman Karen] Hanretty said the moves send a message that Schwarzenegger is backing Republican ideals and is not sliding to the left after voters rejected all four of the initiatives he promoted on the Nov. 8 special election.
