Committee nominates three to replace Lewiston Rep. Von Ehlinger

The 6th Legislative District Republican Central Committee has named three candidates to replace former Idaho state Representative Aaron von Ehlinger.

The three top choices are Glen Baldwin, Robert Blair and Hannah Liedkie.

Baldwin is a retired welder and small-business owner from Culdesac. Blair is a Leland-area farmer and Liedkie is president and CEO of Opportunities Unlimited in Lewiston.

The names of the three candidates will now be submitted to Gov. Brad Little where he has 15 days to appoint one of them to serve out the remainder of von Ehlinger’s term.

Von Ehlinger resigned his legislative seat last week, after the House Ethics Committee recommended that he be censured and suspended without pay for conduct unbecoming a member of the Idaho House of Representatives. (Lewiston Tribune)
