Brackett named to succeed Gannon in Senate

State Rep. Bert Brackett, R-Rogerson, has been appointed to the Idaho Senate by Gov. Butch Otter to finish the term of the late Sen. Tom Gannon, R-Buhl, who died June 24th. Brackett was the top choice among three nominees submitted by the Republican Party legislative committee for the district, which also selected Brackett to succeed Gannon on the November ballot. Brackett, 63, is a rancher and second-term state representative. His appointment to the Senate now means that the same process must be followed to appoint a successor for Brackett in the state House. Below is the governor’s full press release on the appointment.
