Try that:

copy/paste the function senator-jump in your .emacs and replace
(apply #'completing-read
(apply #'ido-completing-read

That will give you ido completion, but if 
(senator-completion-list in-context) return nothing (nil)

To know that, use C-u C-M x on the function senator-jump and use it,
and then use "n" to step throught the code.

Do you have completion with the original code?(i.e using
