CLAYTON — Stacey Newman is the Democratic Party's nominee for the state representative seat left vacant by the resignation of Democrat Steve Brown.

The nomination was announced Thursday. Newman is 55 and lives in St. Louis County.

It wasn't clear if the Republicans have named a candidate. A phone call to the Republican Party was not returned.

Brown defeated Newman in last year's Democratic primary. Brown and another lawmaker, Democratic State Sen. Jeff Smith of St. Louis, resigned Aug. 25 after pleading guilty to federal obstruction of justice charges connected to Smith's unsuccessful 2004 run for Congress.

Smith also resigned his Senate seat.
