ANNAPOLIS, Md. - A spokesman for Republican David Craig says the Harford County executive has chosen Del. Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio as his running mate in his run for governor.

Jim Pettit, Craig's campaign spokesman, confirmed the selection in a telephone interview with The Associated Press on Thursday.

Pettit says two news conferences have been scheduled for Tuesday to announce her selection. One will be in the morning in Annapolis. The other will be in the afternoon in St. Michaels on the Eastern Shore.

Haddaway-Riccio, who is 36, has been a member of the House of Delegates since August 2003. Her legislative district includes parts of Caroline, Dorchester, Talbot and Wicomico counties on the Eastern Shore.
