Mel Carnahan was governor. He was running for Senator but died before the election in that plane crash, and the Dems put his wife Jean Carnahan into office instead. She served two years and then lost. So his father was never actually a Senator. But his grandfather was a congressman.

It seems to be an entitled family.
