DescriptionGov. Ernie Fletcher asked his senior staff to compile a list of possible replacements for Lt. Gov. Steve Pence on his 2007 ticket, a spokesman said.

Fletcher will not name the replacement until next week at the earliest, said Brett Hall, the governor’s communications director. Hall said Fletcher, who left today for a vacation in Florida, wants to make any announcement in person.

In the coming weeks, Fletcher also will be looking for a replacement for Pence as Justice and Public Safety Cabinet secretary.

Pence announced this morning that he is not running for re-election with Fletcher next year and is stepping down from the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet.

He will remain as lieutenant governor until the end of his term.
