If a republican senator 4 years from now does this I would think they should have a fill in also.
Republican senators have missed plenty votes campaigning in the past as well. i'm sure Dubya missed many governor duties or whatever he was doing before the presidency during (stealing of?) the election in 00.
seriously tho, the constituents who elected these officials are most likely very happy for their representatives to run, and on votes where numbers really count, i;m sure either they or a fill-in would vote. i'm sure anyone who voted for either Kerry or Edwards thinks them campaigning against Bush is the best possible action they could possibly be taking.
