Three potential candidates have emerged to replace Rep. Joe Armstrong as the Democratic party’s House District 18 nominee, Humphrey on the Hill reports. Party members reportedly are looking to outgoing County Commissioner Sam McKenzie, City Councilman Dan Brown and community advocate Rick Staples as top candidates to replace Armstrong on the ballot. The party has called an Aug. 18 meeting to select a candidate. Armstrong, who had run unopposed in his primary race last week, was convicted Monday on a felony charge of filing a false income tax return, disqualifying him from seeking re-election.
