Governor Makes Appointment to Fill Idaho House Seat
Gov. Brad Little appointed Aaron von Ehlinger to fill the Idaho House District 6 seat until November’s general election.
The appointment was made one day after von Ehlinger challenged incumbent Rep. Thyra Stevenson, and won the Republican primary for the seat.
However, Stevenson passed away on May 11 following a heart attack.
She remained on the Republican primary ballot because it was too late to change forms.
The 6th Legislative District Republican Central Committee nominated von Ehlinger and two others as potential picks following the passing of Stevenson.
Von Ehlinger will now be the incumbent in the November general election, where he is running unopposed.
