Subject: RE: POL: A Salute to Jim Jeffords!
Doug, I was looking into the vacancy rules because of all the talk about resigning and running in a special election. A special election would only be held in Arizona. Therefore, the people who advocated that he resign and run in the special election as a Democrat or Independent are advocating something that could not happen, whether he wanted it to or not. That was the only reason for that bit of research.

Back to my holiday weekend. The weather cleared unexpectedly, so we're cooking out.
