ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Two Maryland lawmakers were sworn in as senators to replace their peers who moved on to be part of Gov. Larry Hogan’s administration.

Sen. Andrew Serafini, R-Washington, replaces former Sen. Christopher Shank, whom Hogan appointed as the executive director of the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention.

Sen. Justin Ready, R-Carroll, takes the seat formerly filled by Sen. Joseph Getty, who now serves as chief legislative officer for the Hogan administration.

Both men, who were sworn in Monday night, were members of the House of Delegates when their names were submitted for appointment by the Republican Central Committees for their respective counties.

Their replacements will be chosen through the same process.
