Feingold Wants the People's Senate Choice

Ad Feedback

One U.S. Senator wants Senate vacancies to be filled by the people of the respective state and not by the governor.

Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., is trying to amend the U.S constitution to require special elections to fill vacant seats in the U.S. Senate.

"The controversies surrounding some of the recent gubernatorial appointments to vacant Senate seats make it painfully clear that such appointments are an anachronism that must end," he said.

The constitution already requires special elections for vacancies in the U.S. House of Representatives.
