Texas Governor Calls Special Election for Congressional District
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott set June 14 as the date for an emergency special election to fill the House seat vacated by Democratic Rep. Filemon Vela.
Vela resigned from Congress on March 31 just months before the end of his current term that would have ended in January. Vela is among 31 House Democrats who said they would not seek reelection this year.
The winner of the election will only have the seat for five months before the November midterms determine who will represent the 34th Congressional District for the following two years.
