Politically Uncorrected: A Really Special Election

On March 13, a special election will be held in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District, with Republican Rick Saccone opposing Democrat Connor Lamb. Libertarian candidate Drew Miller is also on the ballot. It is an especially convoluted special election since the winner will need to also run two months later in the May 15th primary to be nominated by his party – and then again in the November general election when the seat’s regular term expires. But three elections across some eight months might be one of the more unexceptional aspects of this contest.
