PHOENIX (AP) - Two sitting Democratic lawmakers and the chairwoman of the 26th legislative district’s Democratic party have been recommended to replace a state senator who resigned.

The Maricopa County board of Supervisors will chose from among the nominees to replace Sen. Ed. Ableser next week. Ableser resigned last month to take a job in Nevada.

The sitting lawmakers on the list of nominees chosen by Democratic precinct committee members Monday night are Reps. Andrew Sherwood and Juan Mendez. Both currently represent the district that covers Tempe and parts of Mesa. Also nominated was Democratic district chairwoman Samantha Pstross.

State law say vacancies must be filled from the same party.
