Tjr 4th Legislative District Republican precinct committee officers to name three possible replacements for Sen. Bob McCaslin is back on for Saturday morning.
The time and place have been changed. Registration will start at 8:30 a.m. and the meeting at 9:30 a.m., at the Luxury Box, 10512 E. Sprague, in University City.
The meeting was originally scheduled for the New Life Assembly Church, but as noted in this earlier post, had to be relocated yesterday.
Spokane County GOP Chairman Matthew Pederson said they did some legal research and concluded that if they held the meeting on the same day, and just altered the time and place, they wouldn't need a new 10-day notice to precinct officers. He believes the PCOs will all be notified today, and the party will have people at the New Life Church Saturday morning to direct anyone who doesn't get the notice headed toward the Luxury Box.
Republican PCOs will have three rounds of voting to pick nominees to replace McCaslin, who resigned this month because of health problems. The winner in each round will be placed on the list to be sent to the Spokane County Commissioners, who choose the relacement from among those nominees.
