COQUILLE, Ore. - Saturday, March 24, is the first meeting to replace outgoing Senator Jeff Kruse.
The Oregon Republican Party said officials from the five counties that make up Kruse's district will meet in Coquille.
The members from Douglas, Jackson, Josephine, Curry and Coos Counties will nominate three to five candidates. Those names will then be forwarded to the Secretary of State's office and will eventually voted on by the county boards of all five counties.
Kruse officially resigned on March 15 over allegations of sexual harassment against women, including other senators.
Kruse has since denied the allegation.
