They can get elected too?

Dead state senator reelected in Long Beach

Jenny Oropeza, who died after a long illness last month, was reelected to another term in the state Senate on Tuesday. With more than half of the vote counted, voters in Oropeza's Long Beach district gave her more than 54% percent of the vote. Republican John Stammreich trailed with 40% of the vote.

This reminds of the 2000 election, when Missouri elected the late Mel Carnahan to the US Senate.
