Republican Party officials will hold a caucus this evening to elect a new candidate for the District 59 race to replace Daniel Bates, who died Sept. 29 of an apparent heart attack.

GARDINER, Maine (AP) _ Republicans in the Gardiner-Randolph area will select a Maine House of Representatives candidate to replace Daniel Bates, who has died.

Party officials will hold a caucus this evening. Bates, who was 61, was to have faced Gay Grant, the Democratic candidate in the District 59 race. Bates died Sept. 29 of an apparent heart attack.

The House seat is currently held by Democratic Rep. Stephen Hanley of Gardiner, who can't seek re-election because of term limits.

The Kennebec Journal in Augusta says Friday's caucus will be held in Gardiner City Council Chambers.
