Sen Thomas Dies

Sen Craig Thomas (R-WY) has died after a battle with leukemia. He was re-elected just last year to his third term.

His death won't affect the balance in the Senate. Under Wyoming law for replacing a Senator, the deceased Senator's party -- the GOP -- will submit three names to the Wyoming's Democratic Governor who will choose one of them as the new Senator. (KTVB)
