NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

Members of the New Hanover County Republican Party are expected to decide Tuesday who will replace former State Senator Thom Goolsby.

Goolsby wasn't planning to seek re-election this year and announced his resignation earlier this month.

Goolsby wrote that he resigned because the budget-adjusting session of the General Assembly is now over. But lawmakers are considering whether to return to Raleigh for more work this year.

Many people have projected the GOP to appoint Wilmington attorney Michael Lee to fill his spot.

WECT's Kasey Cunningham is expected to be at the meeting and will update you with the final decision tonight.
