By The Associated Press
PERU — A county council member has been picked as the new state senator for a northern Indiana district.
Republican precinct committee members selected Cass County Councilwoman Stacey Donato on Monday night to replace Sen. Randy Head of Logansport. Head resigned after 11 years in the Senate to become chief deputy prosecutor for Pulaski County.
Head endorsed Donato for the seat. She's in her second term on the Cass County Council and will complete Head's Senate term, which runs until the November 2020 election.
The Kokomo Tribune reports Donato defeated five other candidates. She won a majority in the fifth round of voting over Flora Town Councilman Jake Adams and former Miami County Sheriff Tim Miller.
Donato becomes the 10th woman in the Senate, where Republicans hold a dominating 40-10 majority.
