U.S. Senator Fetterman in hospital for clinical depression -statement (msn.com)
…and this is why this former democrat no longer plays nice with present day Dems. These idiots know what they’re voting for, and prefer electing literal basket cases over someone who posts “mean tweets” or doesn’t put certain groups on a pedestal.
Racist, bigoted, misogynistic rant over
All that matters to either party is to Win The Election. After the win we can replace anyone we need to.
Except judges, to the Supreme Court!
Nancy, who is more politically savvy then I thinks if fetterman poops out they will try and move his wife in to fill his term.
Not sure if that’s legal?
This administration has been illegal from the start.
She can be inserted/appointed during the “interim” then voted out in 6 years.
It’s been done before. An seat becomes vacant and the governor appoints a family member. Because, you know, aristocracy.
Heck, I had a congressional representative that literally left her seat to her nephew in her will, as if it was her property. He’s been in office ever since.
In many states the governor appoints a replacement senator to finish the term until the next election. If PA has this law it is totally legal. Further, such appointments of surviving widows has happened several times.
I agree with Nancy that this is a highly likely scenario.
Maybe that was the plan all along.
I’ve heard that exact theory during the election.
I don’t have the name, but I recall an election where a dead candidate was elected. A judge ruled that it was too close to the election to change the candidates, so they ran with the ballots they had and the people elected the deceased candidate. The governor then immediately named a replacement.
PA again there. Pittsburgh, I believe. That and Philly are responsible for these elections.
Carnahan was running against Ashcroft, for a Senate seat, in Missouri when he was killed in a plane crash. The voters elected Carnahan and his widow was appointed to take his seat by the governor. Two years later she was defeated in a special election to serve the remainder of the six year term by Jim Talent. Missouri politics was interesting but usually predictable.
Happy Anniversary @William226
Thanks @Karacal, it finally dawned on me how people were aware of an anniversary.
The sad thing, for me as a conservative, is that the Republican Party couldn’t field a candidate to him.
Same here, I used to think it was birthdays, but the slice of cake by our name is our anniversary with USCCA. Cute. Cheers!
You can thank R. McDaniel for that SNAFU, who got reelected through no vote of ours.
I’ve grumbled a few times that the GOP needs to get over their fascination with celebrity candidates. They’re so used to squawking celebrities on the left that if a famous person has a single moderate idea, they all want to put him into high office.
Fetterman did want better healthcare, but he never said for whom.
