nominated to fill a vacant Campbell County seat in the Wyoming
House of Representatives.
Longtime rancher Marion Scott and attorneys Tom Lubnau and John
Cotton have been chosen as candidates to replace Republican Jene
Jansen resigned his House seat July 30th to take an education
job in California.
The Campbell County Commission will choose a successor from the
three nominees to fill the remainder of his term.

the November 2nd general election ballot.
Jansen was the only candidate, Republican or Democrat, to enter
the race for House District 31 during the filing period in May.
The district covers west-central and southwest Campbell County,
including Savageton and northeast Gillette.
