      As the new governor, Nelson would be able to appoint his replacement; that person would serve until the next statewide general election, in 2016.

      the governor makes an appointment to fill a U.S. Senate vacancy, and the appointee serves until the next regularly-scheduled, statewide general election.  The person elected at that next regularly-held general election serves for the remainder of the unexpired term, if any.  If the term was set to expire at that general election, the person elected serves a full six-year term.

      Why settle for someone who isn't the best Dem?

    •  Imagine the PR bonanza for us, too (3+ / 0-)

      "The Republicans ran Crist out of the party, so he ran as a Dem and won"...wouldn't that be something going into 2016!
