In Virginia, the top 3 positions - governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general, are all voted on separately so you can end up with a mixed executive branch, as we did in 2006. Tim Kaine (D) was governor and Bob Bolling (R) was lt. governor and our present governor, Bob McDonnell (R), was attorney general. And yes, if the governor dies or something, the lt. governor takes over. Keeps them on their toes.
