Rebecca Johnson, the wife of the late Dan Johnson, received the Republican nomination for the 49th district on Thursday night.
Johnson committed suicide earlier this month after allegations surfaced that he molested a teen girl.
His wife blamed his death on the media and decided she would run for his seat.
She'll face Democrat Linda Belcher, who her late husband defeated last year.
The special election will be held on February 20th.
