Two state representatives said Tuesday they are interested in filling Troy Hebert’s former Acadiana seat in the state Senate.
State Reps. Simone Champagne, R-Jeanerette, and Fred Mills, D-St. Martinville, said they would sign up during qualifying Dec. 15-17.
A special election will be held Jan. 22 to fill the vacancy left when Hebert, No Party-Jeanerette, resigned to become Gov. Bobby Jindal’s commissioner of Alcohol and Tobacco Control. A runoff, if necessary, would be Feb. 19.
