For most states the appointment is only good until the next scheduled election. Isakson resigned in January, our governor appoint Loeffler, but she has to run in November. So we have two senate races this year. Like Arizona did in 2018. The normal one and a special election. Whoever wins the special election will have to run again in 2022 as that seat is a class III seat. 2016-2022,
