Republican Party precinct leaders on Tuesday night picked Tatum Lee, a self-described strong constitutional conservative, to serve a full two-year term in the House to replace the late Leonard Mastroni.
Lee won the seat in an uncontested race to represent House District 117, which covers parts of Edwards, Hodgeman, Kiowa, Ness, Finney, Ford, Pawnee and Rush counties.
She had already been serving out Mastroni's current term after the Republican lawmaker died last September.
She received 95 of the 103 votes cast. There were seven blank ballots and one with a write-in name that was invalid since . . .
