FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — A Democratic Party vacancy committee has selected state Rep. Joann Ginal to serve out the term of Sen. John Kefalas, who was elected to the Larimer County commission.

The Coloradoan reports the selection was made Sunday.

Both Ginal and Kefalas represent Fort Collins. Ginal, serving a fourth and final term in the House, has advocated for health care and environmental issues.

Kefalas, an open-records advocate, plans to resign his seat on Jan. 2, the day before the 2019 legislative session begins.

Democrats took over control of the state Senate in November and consolidated their hold on the House.
