Republican state Rep. George Rauscher is among the finalists to replace Wasilla Sen. Mike Dunleavy in the Alaska Senate.
Republicans from Dunleavy's district met Monday to winnow down an initial list of 11 applicants to three.
Along with Rauscher, the finalists are Tom Braund and Todd Smoldon.
Their names are being sent to Gov. Bill Walker, who will make the appointment. That appointment, however, is subject to confirmation by Senate Republicans.
