  • Lucy Calutti fights back tears while she waits with her husband U.S. Sen. Kent Conrad just before addressed the North Dakota Democratic-NPL State Convention May 4, 1992, in the Bismarck Civic Center.  Two days earlier on Thursday, Mau 2, 1992 , he had announced that he would not run for a second term because of a pledge he made during his narrow win over long-time Republic Sen. Mark Andrews in 1996 that unless the U.S. budget deficit wasn't substantially reduced during his first term in office, he would not seek a second term. The death of veteran U.S. Sen. Quentin Burdick of North Dakota Sept. 8, 1992, just two months before the election, necessitated a special election to fill his unexpired term after his widow, Jocelyn Burdick, was appointed to fill his seat temporarily. Conrad, urged to run for the empty seat by fellow democrats, won the special election and was re-elected to the Senate. Forum file photo
