Rebecca Gwatney will replace her late husband Bill as delegate at the Democratic National Convention.

The Arkansas delegation to the Democratic National Convention met via conference call on Wednesday night to fill some vacancies in the delegation. 

On the call, led by Governor Mike Beebe, the delegation elected Rebecca Gwatney to fill the delegate position left vacant by the death of her husband, Senator Bill Gwatney.

"I can't express how honored I am to represent Bill at the Democratic National Convention," said Gwatney.  "I'm happy to do this in memory of my husband and his love of people.  Bill loved helping and serving people.  He wanted to make Arkansas better for everyone."

Also on the call, the delegation elected Karla Bradley to serve as chair of the delegation in Denver.  Two other vacancies were filled with Karen Garcia of Garland County will serve as a delegate for the 4th Congressional District and Krystal Thrailkill of Polk County will serve as an alternate for 4th Congressional District.

Gwatney, 44, is a claims adjuster for a property and casualty insurance company.
