Congresswoman Angie Craig filed a federal lawsuit calling for the Second District election to be held in November after the death of a major party candidate. Legal Marijuana Now Party nominee Adam Weeks died 79 days before Election Day and Secretary of State Steve Simon says that requires a special election in February. The suit requests the general election proceed as required under federal law so the district will not be without representation in the U-S House for three months. Craig said, “unfortunately, the process currently in place would deprive Minnesotans of their seat at the table at a time when critical legislation affecting our state will be debated.” Republican challenger Tyler Kistner will discuss the race during a Capitol news conference this morning.
