Special Election Set to Fill Pennsylvania’s Second Congressional District Seat
A special election has been set for November 8, 2016, to temporarily fill the seat of U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah.
The 2nd Congressional District seat was vacated when Fattah resigned after being convicted in federal court on 22 counts, including money laundering, bribery, and fraud.
The winner of the special election, held on the same day as the general election, will hold the seat for exactly eight weeks before the 115th Congress is sworn in on January 3.
