Short version:

If the VP dies before the electoral college meets (*not* election day, but 5 or 6 weeks later), the president-elect selects a new VP which must be approved by the Democratic or Republican National Committee.

If the VP-elect dies after the electoral college meets, the 25th amendment takes over, and the president/president-elect must nominate a new vice president who must be confirmed by both the U.S. House and Senate.

RIP Mr. Spencer.

Couldn't agree more. Insensitive, morbid, tasteless and even shameless. Imagine if Spencer were a member of your family... Would you want to see that clip, even knowing that it was "just a TV show?"
