Two promises made; two promises kept.
That's what the appointment Wednesday of Lt. Gov-elect Steve Pence to the position of Justice Cabinet secretary adds up to.
During the campaign, Pence and Gov.-elect Ernie Fletcher promised that Pence would be a working lieutenant governor and that more would be done to curb the epidemics in Kentucky.
In one fell swoop, Fletcher has put Pence to work and has given fighting the drug problem a high priority in his upcoming administration.
Pence is well-qualified for the task. Before becoming a candidate for lieutenant governor, Pence was the U.S. attorney for the western district of Kentucky.
