Two specials in Louisiana last night; D hold in a House seat (Cedric Richmond's) and an R pickup of a Senate seat held by a D-turned-I.

http://staticresults.sos.louisiana.gov/1222011_Legislative.html

Puts the Senate at a 19-19 tie with one vacancy, apparently. Who will be the first party-switcher to create a Republican majority?

Oh, and in the VA HD-91 special, nobody bothered to file, so Helsel is unopposed.

We nominated the liberal, who is also kind of cute over the pro-life Moderate Hero in 5B. Good.

She's also only 25. The vacating incumbent held the seat for a decade and yet he's only 35 now. Weird district to be electing youngs. It's not a youthful place at all.

She is kind of cute indeed, if the picture is an accurate reflection of reality.  When does this special election take place?

Special election in Minnesota House, 5B. Mark Dayton has appointed incumbent Tony Sertich, former Majority Leader and who was in line to become Speaker to chair the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board (Yes the acronym for that is IRRRB, awesome.) Sertich was mentioned as a possible challenger to Cravaack so this probably takes him out of the running. Primary is Feb 1st, general is Feb 15th.

Dayton won the seat 63-29, so obviously this one probably isn't going to be competitive, but the DFL primary should be interesting. Filing deadline has just passed, there are four Democrats running, one IP and one Republican (the same guy who lost to Sertich in November and got 33%.)

Remember that State House race here in Massachusetts where the Republican defeated a Democratic incumbent by 1 vote? Well, a judge ruled that a discarded ballot should be counted, giving us a 6,587 to 6,587 tie.

It's now up to the State House to decide how to break the tie. The expected route is for a re-vote rather than run-off, and the Secretary of State seems to believe it should be open to all candidates, not just Rep. Alicea (D) and Peter Durant (R).

A date has yet to be set.

So, what's the House composition now? 127D: 32R: 1 Vacant?

No, from the cited article, it's pretty clear that the Democrat gets to keep the seat until this is finally resolved:  "Mr. Alicea will continue to represent the district as a holdover."  So, 128D, 32R, for now.

Who knows, maybe the committee will decide he just keeps the seat as in a boxing championship where in a draw, the incumbent retains the title.

Actually, another one of the Towns family, maybe Deirdra Towns, could take the seat as well.

Looks like the death last year of our state senator will actually lead to 4 extra elections.

Election 1, held to coincide with the 2010 general election, was the first round/primary, with the top two going on the runoff.

Election 2, the runoff held last month, won by our sitting state assemblyman.

Election 3, we now have a vacancy due to said assemblyman's victory for the state senate seat, with the first round/ jungle primary to be held I believe in late March or April.

Election 4, with the likely result of no majority won in the first round, we will probably have a runoff for the assembly seat held I'd guess in June.

The turnout will be pathetic, but its an interesting experience looking at a ballot with just one race on it, similar to a parliamentary style election.

I had that one time. For a special mayoral election. It was non-partisan though.

Final totals in the MN House 5B race:

Democratic-Farmer-Labor    CARLY MELIN    4525   60.41%
Republican    PAUL JACOBSON    2658   35.48%
Independence    CYNTHIA KAFUT-HAGEN    298   3.98%

A solid win for a first timer 25 year old nobody against the GOP candidate that just ran in November's elections.

If that part of Minnesota can elect youngs I don't know why we don't. I suppose Margaret Anderson-Kelliher was only 29 when she was first elected to her district and her successor isn't that old either.

Shaping up to be a pretty easy Dem hold, actually. Granger is winning in Vermillion, the biggest part of the district. I love Southern regionalism.
