We'll find out tonight whether Rosa Gill will be leaving the school board for a seat in the state Senate.
The Wake County Democratic Party will meet tonight to pick a replacement for the late Vernon Malone. Of the eight candidates, state Rep. Dan Blue was endorsed by the Raleigh-Wake Citizens Association.
Even if the Democratic Party picks Blue, there's a chance that Gill would be asked to fill his state House seat. Paul Terrell, the Republican candidate who was beaten by Blue in November, says he'll run against Gill if she's in that seat.
If picked for either post, Gill's seat on the school board would be filled by the other eight members. The new board member would serve the rest of Gill's term, which expires November 2011.
