United States Senate

2002: U.S. Sen. Paul Wellstone, a Democrat from Minnesota, dies in an airplane crash in northern Minnesota along with seven others, including his wife, Sheila, and their daughter, Marcia. Wellstone's death came just 11 days before the 2002 U.S. Senate election in which he was running for a third term. The Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party selected former Vice President Walter Mondale to compete with Norm Coleman in the general election, with Coleman winning election.
