Rest in Peace, Juanita Millender-McDonald; Special Election Soon

NY Times writeup here. For a while I lived in her district. She had been fighting the cancer for some time, as I recall a year or two ago calling her office about a vote and hearing she was on leave for illness for a stretch, and it made the Daily Breeze as well. She fought it off for a long time, though. May she rest in peace.

But hardly a few days go by before the speculation begins. starts about who will run to replace her. I guess because the election timetable is so short, it's a little more understandable.

The election will occur in less than two months -- June 26 is the day for the primary, and the Dem who wins that will be the new House member. The general election will be a formality.

There's already a Wiki page for the 37th Congressional district special election. Excellent! I think I'll be getting informed (and perhaps contributing) there.
