He could do that but I believe what happens is that the NC GOP will give him a name or names they want. He doesn't have to pick from that list but he likely will.

In 1986 a GOP NC senator killed himself during an election year. The NC GOP governor appointed a GOP congressman to fill the seat but he lost in November to the Dem.
