North Dakota GOP Wants to Change Succession Law

North Dakota Republicans will propose a bill to change the manner in which open Senate seats are filled, amid rumors that Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) is considering running for governor in 2016, the Say Anything Blog reports.

Heitkamp would choose her own successor under current law. The proposed change would require Senate vacancies to be filled by special election.
