OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - A Garfield County wheat farmer has been chosen to fill the Washington state House seat left empty by the resignation of Susan Fagan of Pullman.

The Spokesman-Review reports (https://is.gd/Z2rV5M) that commissioners from the southeastern Washington district’s six counties on Friday named 53-year-old Mary Dye as their choice to fill the 9th Legislative District seat left open a week ago.

Longtime Republican activist Dye and her husband operate a wheat farm near Pomeroy.

State GOP Chairwoman Susan Hutchison says Dye is the Republican state committeewoman for Garfield County.

Fagan resigned following allegations that she falsified travel expense forms. A state Legislative Ethics Board investigation against her continues.
