Special Election Set in Illinois
A federal judge in Illinois signed a consent decree Tuesday scheduling a special election to replace former U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock, who resigned last month amid ethics investigations.
Judicial approval was necessary to set the election date because Illinois election law conflicts with federal voting law.
A primary election will be held July 7 and the general election will follow on Sept. 10.
