I'm sure most of you have heard about Senator Johnson and his unfortunate medical situation. He is undergoing brain surgery and hopefully will recover fully. However the unfortunate timing of his condition may leave us all in the lurch. The Govenor of SD is a Republican and if Senator Johnson is unable to fulfil his duties, Govenor Rounds is fully entitled to pick someone to take his place, and historically Govenors pick from their OWN party, regardless of which party the previous senator came from.
If this happens and if Gov Rounds chooses a Republican to replace Senator Johnson we have just lost that all so slender majority in the Senate. Any comments on this one?
