Gov. Parris N. Glendening has approved the nomination of Robert R. Neall to fill the state Senate seat vacant since John A. Cade's death last month.
The governor's endorsement was a formality after the Anne Arundel Republican Central Committee's selection of Neall last week.
The full committee voted 10-3 to pick the former three-term state legislator and Anne Arundel County executive for the $29,700-a-year post.
Neall, 48, will be sworn in Tuesday at a State House ceremony in Annapolis.
He also will assume Cade's assignment on the influential Budget and Taxation Committee when the General Assembly convenes next month.
