Over the last week, The Herald-Mail found and talked to most of the people who applied for the House of Delegates seat vacated by Robert A. McKee.
The Washington County Republican Central Committee, which is in charge of sending Gov. Martin O'Malley a recommendation of who should be appointed, said Monday that 19 people applied.
