Shea Flinn Named to State Senate; Neal Gets House Nod 

Shea Flinn, a Democrat, was named by the Shelby County Commission as the new interim state Senator from District 30. Flinn, who received a healthy majority over three other nominees at a special commission meeting Monday morning, will serve until the winner of next year's special election to fill the seat vacated by congressman-elect Steve Cohen. The vote crossed party lines and came after a flurry of discussion about matters of partisanship and whether only a “caretaker” candidate (as Flinn described himself) should be considered.
