In the absence of anything new to write about Hamlet Goore

Two former interim United States Senators have made campaign contributions to the ’06 U.S. Senate campaigns of the sons of the Governors who appointed them to office. When Richard Russell died in 1971, then-Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter sent Democratic State Chairman David Gambrell to the U.S. Senate. Gambrell, who lost the 1972 Democratic primary to Sam Nunn, has contributed $1,000 to Jack Carter, who is running for the Senate in Nevada. Governor Thomas Kean appointed Wall Streeter Nicholas Brady to the Senate in 1982 when Harrison Williams resigned following his criminal conviction. Brady did not run for a full term that year (he later served as U.S. Secretary of the Treasury under Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush). The only living former Republican Senator from New Jersey gave $4,200 to Kean’s son, Tom Kean, Jr., who is running for the seat Brady held for eight months.
