Senator Johnson's Stroke

Senator Tim Johnson of South Dakota may have had a stroke earlier today. He is a Democrat, and currently there is a 51-49 split in the Senate. South Dakota has a Republican governor. If Johnson is unable to serve in office, his replacement will be appointed by the governor. This would cause a 50-50 split with Vice President Cheney given the opportunity to break the tie. That's right, the Senate would return to Republican control. This may be huge.

More to come....
