WHAS, our ABC sister station in Louisville, reports Governor Steve Beshear has appointed Senate President David Williams to circuit court judgeship.
The Judicial Nominating Commission just recommended Williams today.
The Commission also recommended Clinton County Public Defender, Angela Capps, and Senior Judge Stephen Douglas Hurt.
Beshear has a record of appointing Republican foes to higher-paying positions to get them out of the GOP led state Senate.
WHAS reports an official annoucement will be made tomorrow.
