A longtime Wichita attorney says he wants to replace Rep. Nile Dillmore in the Kansas House after Dillmore steps down next month.

John Carmichael is a Democrat, like Dillmore. Democratic precinct committee members in Dillmore's 92nd House District in northwest Wichita will decide during the fall who will fill the seat through the end of Dillmore's current, two-year term.

But Carmichael says he's also preparing to run for the seat in 2014.

Carmichael is secretary of the Kansas Democratic Party and a former member of the Kansas Human Rights Commission.

Dillmore has announced that he's resigning after the Legislature's special session, which convenes Sept. 3 so that lawmakers can rewrite a law allowing convicted murderers to be sentenced to at least 50 years in prison.
