GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A Greenville urologist will serve out the term of a North Carolina House member who resigned this week to go work for U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis.

Pitt County Republicans chose Dr. Gregory Murphy to replace Brian Brown, who stepped down Tuesday in his second term to become Tillis’ eastern North Carolina representative. The Daily Reflector of Greenville reported (https://bit.ly/1L4hXoa ) the county’s GOP executive committee voted unanimously for Murphy after interviewing him and local businessman Ashley Bleau.

Gov. Pat McCrory is obligated to appoint Murphy, who operates a medical practice and is a clinical professor at East Carolina University’s medical school. The term runs through 2016.

Murphy and Bleau said they plan to run for the 9th House District seat next year, meaning they would have a March primary.
