11/29/17 – 5:04 A.M.

A panel of Ohio Senate Republicans has recommended State Representative PRob McColley take the seat left open by Cliff Hite’s resignation. The Courier reports the screening committee announced their decision Tuesday night. Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof said the Senate Republican caucus will meet soon to accept the recommendation. He added the goal is to seat McColley by early December.

McColley will serve the remaining 13 months of Cliff Hite’s unexpired term.

Hite stepped down in October following a sexual harassment complaint.

McColley currently represents the 81st House District, which includes Putnam, Henry, and Williams counties. It also covers part of Fulton County.
