HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — The opinion editor of a Kansas newspaper has been picked to complete the term of a Democratic state legislator who died of natural causes earlier this month.
Reno County Democrats selected Jason Probst on Wednesday to finish the term of Rep. Patsy Terrell, who was 55 years old when she was found dead June 7 in a Topeka hotel room, the Hutchinson News (http://bit.ly/2sUcYp6 ) reported.
Jim Clark, a former union steward who was involved in Terrell's campaign, also garnered votes. Attorney Luann Trummel Wellborn received no votes.
Probst has said he'll resign Thursday...
