NC Senator’s replacement will only serve one year

Friday, January 13th, 2012

SHELBY, N.C. (AP) — A Cleveland County printing company
president is ready to join the North Carolina Senate, although only
for a year.

Wes Westmoreland was unanimously chosen Thursday by local
Republicans to succeed GOP Sen. Debbie Clary, whose resignation
took effect earlier this week. State law obligates Gov. Beverly
Perdue to appoint Westmoreland to the Senate.

The Shelby Star reported Westmoreland plans to only serve the remainder of Clary’s
two-year term because redistricting has put him and current Sen. Warren Daniel
of Burke County in the same redrawn district. Westmoreland said he will back
Daniel in November.

Westmoreland previously ran for the state Senate, losing in 2006
to Democrat Walter Dalton, who is now lieutenant governor.

Clary is finishing more than 17 years in the Legislature, mostly
in the House.
