Newschannel Seven has learned Marti Coley of Marianna will run for her husband's seat in the Florida House of Representatives.
Her husband, David Coley, died of liver cancer last month.
A date for a special election had been set for earlier this month, but was cancelled by Gov. Jeb Bush because the legislative session was still underway. A new election day is supposed to be set before the end of this week.
Sources indicate that Mrs. Coley, a Republican, will announce her candidacy next week.
