heller, ensign, nevadaIt cites a report from The New York Times showing that of the 49 senators selected by gubernatorial appointment in the middle of a term over the past 25 congresses, only 19 won their subsequent election.

To be sure, in recent years, there have been plenty of appointees who did quite well: Republicans Roger Wicker of Mississippi and John Barrasso of Wyoming and Democrats Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Robert Menendez of New Jersey, for example.
