ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The son of the late Del. James Proctor Jr. says his mother will seek to fill his father’s now-vacant seat in the Maryland House of Delegates.

The Washington Post reports ( ) that James Proctor III says Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller asked his mother, Elizabeth Proctor, if she would be part of the District 27 team and she accepted. The district includes parts of Prince George’s and Charles counties.

James Proctor Jr. died Thursday at age 79.

The county’s Democratic Central Committee is responsible for recommending a successor to Gov. Larry Hogan within 30 days. Committee Chair Cheryl Landis says the committee plans to hold a hearing in October for all candidates interested in filling Proctor’s position and the seat vacated by Del. William Campos.
