Missouri Democrats Have not Named a Senate Replacement

October 18, 2000

Two days after the death of Governor Mel Carnahan, Democrats have not made any decisions upon the race for Senate.

Rodger Oakes has more from Jefferson City.

RunTime:
OutCue: SOC

Election day is only 3 weeks away, and most political campaigns have stopped many activities in respect to late Governor Carnahan. No Senatorial decisions have been made either, said the Democratic Party's executive director, Roy Temple.

Actuality:Temple
RunTime: 10s
OutCue: "funeral on Friday."
Contents: Temple says that there has not been any official consideration as to what we do next, and won't be any until after the governor's funeral on Friday.

It is too late for Democrats to name a replacement to run for the Senate. However, if Carnahan wins the election, Governor Roger Wilson will appoint a replacement for the Senate.
