However, his death on September 1 left the Democratic Party without a nominee and the executive committee decided to nominate state Senator Edgar A. Brown as their candidate for the election.

He easily won the election and became the first U.S. senator to be elected by a write-in vote in an election where other candidates had ballot access.
