Randleman replaces East as Republican state Senate nominee

Shirley Randleman decided in January that she would not seek re-election to the state House, but the two-term Republican has been tapped to replace the late Sen. Don East as the party's nominee for state Senate from the 30th District.

Randleman was selected as the party's nominee during a meeting party's local Executive Committee on Sunday at Republican Headquarters in Mount Airy, according to the Mount Airy News.

The newspaper reports that Randleman told the crowd that East wanted her to run for his seat after one more term.

There were five votes before Randleman was declared the winner, as a majority of weighted votes were needed, and six people threw their name in the hat.

Randleman will oppose Democrat Ric Marshall on Tuesday.
