FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Republican party officials have chosen a former Arizona legislator to run for a state Senate seat left vacant by a lawmaker's death.

GOP precinct committeemen voted Saturday morning to have Sylvia Allen fill in as the candidate for the Legislative District 6 seat, which was held by Chester Crandell.

Crandell, a Heber Republican, was killed Aug. 4 when he fell from a horse. His name remained on Tuesday's primary election ballot.

Arizona Republican Party Chairman Robert Graham says Allen's popularity among voters gives the party an excellent chance at retaining the seat.

Allen, who currently serves as a Navajo County supervisor, served in the Senate from 2008 through 2012.

Tom O'Halleran, a former legislator who held office as a Republican, is running for the Senate seat as an independent.
