The controversial appointment of a former Republican strategist to the state's Alcoholic Beverage Control board is now in the hands of the House of Delegates.

Republicans criticized Governor Terry McAuliffe’s appointment of Boyd Marcus to the highly paid post, raising ethical questions after the Republican backed McAuliffe in last year's election.

All 20 Republicans in the state Senate abstained from voting on Marcus' appointment Tuesday, which passed with 20 Democratic votes. The appointment now faces scrutiny in the Republican-dominated House of Delegates.
