SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Five people have applied for a state Senate seat from northeast Washington that becomes available Jan. 1 when veteran state Sen. Bob Morton retires halfway through his term.
The 7th District extends through Spokane, Pend Oreille (pahn-duh-RAY'), Stevens, Ferry and Okanogan counties.
County commissioners will appoint a replacement from among three nominees selected by Republican precinct committee officers.
The Spokesman-Review reports ( http://is.gd/URQcrN) applicants so far include a county commissioner, a former legislator and a former legislative aide.
