Corpse to run for Senate?

I thought only Democrats ran for the Senate after they died! From RCP:
Colorado Republican Senator Wayne Allard is calling it quits. Names that are currently being floated as possible replacements are former U.S. Reps. Scott McInnis and Bob Schaffer , the recently departed Governor Bill Owens, Attorney General John Suthers, and a couple of wildcards like Rep. Tom Tancredo and hall of fame quarterback John Elway.
For those of you on the left, it's a joke. I understand that Owens isn't really dead! Get it..."recently departed"?
