Welcome to the r/politics dialogue thread for the particular elections being held in California’s 25th Congressional District, and Wisconsin’s seventh Congressional District. CA-25 was vacated on November 3, 2019 by former Congresswoman Katie Hill following a leak of nude photographs of her in a relationship with a staffer, in addition to a pending ethics investigation. WI-07 was vacated on September 23, 2019 by former Congressman Sean Duffy to spend time caring for his youngest little one, who has a coronary heart complication, in addition to to take a brand new place as a lobbyist.
Regardless of the coronavirus pandemic, these elections will proceed as scheduled. The first election for CA-25 was held concurrently with the Presidential major in California, with navy veteran and businessman Mike Garcia (R) and assemblywoman Christy Smith (D) advancing to the highest two runoff. In WI-07, the first was held in February, with state senator Tom Tiffany (R) and Ho-Chunk Nation affiliate justice and Wausau faculty board president Tricia Zunker advancing.
The winners of those contests will serve out the rest of the time period for this yr, although they’re more likely to every search election to a full time period as nicely.
