No DeAnn, the Governor does NOT appoint a replacement. He has 10 days to call for a special election, and then the Georgia Sec of State has 30 days to schedule the election. Gov's only appoint Senator's to fill a vacancy until the next election cycle, NOT House members. You never took civics?

Are you sure that this is how it works in GA? It could be different, you know. Is this info from the Secretary of State?

The only thing a Governor can do is call a special election. He cannot appoint. Once again DeAnn Smith shows her ignorance about politics.

you kiss your mama with that mouth?

cbeal, the only "ignorance" that appears to be a problem here is the ignorance of manners. It is possible to correct someone without being rude, or didn't your mama teach you that?

It is basic civics to know that Governor's appoint senate replacements but have to hold special elections for representatives.
