At a memorial service in Williams Arena at the University of Minnesota friends, family members, colleagues, and dignitaries eulogized Senator Paul Wellstone, his wife Sheila, daughter Marcia Wellstone Markuson, as well as Wellstone campaign aides Tom Lapic, Mary McEvoy, and Will McLaughlin. All died, along with two pilots, in an airplane crash on October 25, 2002, just before a midterm election in which Senator Wellstone was running a competitive campaign. Over 20,000 attended the event. Eulogies were often interrupted by applause as some speakers urged voters to keep Senator Wellstone’s vision alive in the upcoming election. close
