Gibbs wants Geddes’ Senate seat

Rep. Marcus Gibbs, R-Grace, says he's seeking the appointment to replace Sen. Bob Geddes in the Senate now that Geddes is the new chairman of the state Tax Commission. Gibbs, who like Geddes represents District 31 in southeastern Idaho, is in his second term in the House. He said he feels "honored to be seeking the seat of a longtime mentor and friend."

If the district GOP central committee nominates Gibbs and Otter selects him to replace Geddes in the Senate, then the same process would begin again to fill Gibbs' House seat.
