Delaware Governor steps aside for one day

Delaware will have a new governor just for today as Governor Markell steps aside.
His replacement, 8-year-old Rachel Gambrill will hold a cabinet meeting in ‘her’ office in the Carvel State Office Building this afternoon. Gambrill, who suffers from a rare form of cancer, will also make a proclamation as she prepares for her third surgery.
