New York Special Election Will Coincide with Presidential Primary
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has set April 28 as the date for a special election for the 27th U.S. Congressional District, meaning the election will coincide with the state’s presidential primary election.
The New York Republican Party sued to have the election scheduled for an earlier date, but lost in the state Supreme Court.
The seat was vacated when Congressman Chris Collins, a Buffalo Republican, resigned after pleading guilty to insider trading.
State party leaders will pick the nominees for the special election.
