NY Gov. Sets Date for Special Election: May 5, 2015
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has called a special election for May 5, 2015, to fill the congressional vacancy left by former Rep. Michael Grimm.
A federal judge compelled the governor to set a date for the election by February 20, 2015.
Political parties now have 12 days to designate their candidates and a few short months to campaign.
