Minnesota vacancy

First, my best wishes go out to the Wellstone family and his campaign.

Yet, morbidly, let me see if I understand Professor Eastman’s post and what he thinks will happen.

Here, a vacancy has occurred in the last year of a Senator’s term. The election will go forward with Wellstone and Coleman on the ballot, right? If Coleman wins, we have essentially the Carnahan situation, where the office is filled by gubernatorial appointment -- how soon thereafter is an election held? Six years? If Coleman wins, he wins, and serves a regular six year term. Right?
