The Constitution for the United States of America

Amendment 17
Section 3

This amendment shall not be so construed as to affect the election or term of any Senator chosen before it becomes valid as part of the Constitution.

This clause merely protects those who have been appointed so they don't have to leave the Senate before their appointment runs out, when they would have to face election by the People.
