Delegate Bob Ashley has been appointed to fill the 3rd District state Senate seat vacated by David Nohe.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin announced Ashley's appointment Tuesday.

Ashley, a Republican, has served nearly three decades in the House of Delegates. He operates an insurance agency in Spencer.

Nohe resigned last month to fill a vacancy on the West Virginia Parole Board.
