Elliott to replace Vasey in Wyoming Senate

The AP reports this:

Carbon and Albany county commissioners have chosen James Elliott Jr. to replace Democrat Bill Vasey in the state Senate. The county commissioners voted for Elliott Monday. Other candidates for the District 11 seat were David Throgmorton and Linda Ann Smith. All three Carbon County commissioners voted for Elliott and two Albany County commissioners voted for David Throgmorton. Eliott will serve through the legislative budget session early next year. He says he hasn't decided if he'll run for the Senate in next year's general election. Vasey resigned in June after23 years in the Wyoming Legislature. He and his wife moved to Yuma, Ariz.
