Antenori, Graf, Vogt selected to replace Paton

Republican precinct committeemen from Legislative District 30 have picked a House member, a former lawmaker and the district chairman as possible replacements for Jonathan Paton, who resigned his Senate seat last month to run for Congress.

It is now up to the Pima County Board of Supervisors to appoint the new state senator from the three finalists.

Committeemen selected Rep. Frank Antenori, district chairman Ted Vogt, and former Rep. Randy Graf.

Antenori got through in the first round, followed by Vogt and then Graf in succeeding rounds.

Paton was the fourth lawmaker who left the Capitol in order to concentrate on a congressional race.

Pamela Gorman, Jim Waring and Sam Crump had resigned to run for Arizona’s 3rd Congressional District.

Paton will duke it out with fellow Republicans for the chance to challenge Democratic U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District this November.
