Replacing Stipe

State Representative Richard Lerblance will take over Gene Stipe's former Senate seat; he won 55 percent of the vote in Stipe's heavily-Democratic district over Republican Jess Davis in yesterday's special election.

Of course, this means there will be another special election, to fill Lerblance's House seat.

Wow, I hadn't heard that. A Republican got 44% of the vote in Gene Stipe's district???

What's next, the Senate Pro Tem admitting he's an alcoholic?

What a crazy state :)

Let us drink to Cal Hobson's newfound (maybe) sobriety.
