    rather than the orderly process which would have allowed this seat to be filled by someone the people of this district approve of.

    He ran no campaign, the people of his district knew he was probably going to resign,  and that it was important not to allow a republican to get the seat.

    but we are charmed you are so concerned about the cost of a special election.
