KAYSVILLE, Utah (AP) -- Davis County Republicans have nominated former state representative and Utah Transportation Commission Stuart Adams to fill Lt. Gov. Greg Bell's vacated state Senate seat.
Delegates considered eight candidates at a special county convention held Saturday. Adams received about 53 percent of the vote for the District 22 seat. The district includes parts of Centerville, Farmington, Fruit Heights, Kaysville and Layton.
Adams' nomination must be seconded by the state Republican Party and finalized by Gov. Gary Herbert.
Adams was a member of Utah's House of Representatives from 2003 to 2006 and says he looks forward to returning to legislative work.
Adams says his focus will be on economic growth that will improve Utah's transportation and education systems.
