The seat doesn't go vacant. The governor will appoint the replacement, who will be there until 2012 instead of Nov. 2010.
This is just Democrats twisting the election laws to suit them -- again.

No, the Democrat governor gets to appoint the replacement who essentially gets close to 2 1/2 years without facing the voters. The replacement may actually be more conservative. Byrd drifted to the left in later years, presumably when he no longer could think for himself and simply voted however his leftist DC-based staffers told him to vote.
