OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Weber County Democrats are beginning the search for a new county attorney and they're likely to settle on one of their own.

Mark DeCaria, the county attorney for the last 15 years and a Democrat, has been appointed by Gov. Jon Huntsman to replace 2nd District Judge Parley Baldwin, who is retiring.

Although the appointment is still subject to approval by the Utah Senate, officials are beginning to look at finding a new county attorney.

Steve Olsen, vice-chairman of the county's Democratic central committee, says they'll consider anyone who applies for the job -- but are likely to favor Democrats.

The party will eventually recommend three people. County commissioners will select from that list to fill the post.
