Democrats nominate 3 to fill Ariz. House vacancy

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The Pima County Board of Supervisors will pick one of three nominees to fill an Arizona House vacancy.

Democratic Party activists from Legislative District 2 over the weekend nominated Demion Clinco, Anabelle Nuñez and Miguel Cuevas for the House vacancy.

It was created when the supervisors appointed then-Rep. Andrea Dalessandro to fill a Senate vacancy. That vacancy was created by Sen. Linda Lopez’s resignation.

The supervisors are scheduled to consider filling the House vacancy on Tuesday.

The appointee will serve out the remainder of Dalessandro’s term in the House.
