       was an incumbent who lost a week after passing away several years ago. He lost to Lee Baca who has been Sheriff ever since. I have to admit that I voted for the dead guy mostly out of the novelty of the situation, and because I wasn't sure that Baca would be the best replacement (at the time he was a Repub, but is now an independent, I think.) Had Block won there would have been a special election to fill the vacancy. I expect that will be the outcome; Democrats in that district would probably prefer to have no Senator for a few months rather than a Greedy Old Party Senator for four years.
