Another New York Special Election?

The end of March New York had a special election to fill seat vacated when Hillary Clinton's senate seat. It appears that within the next month we will have another congressional special election in New York. This will be in New York's 23rd congressional district. Obama selected Rep. John McHugh the ranking member on the armed services committee to serves as the new Secretary of the Army. This is a very rural district that has a Republican congressman, but voted 52% for Obama. It will be a critical election as Republicans need to hold onto all their seats. At this point the early favorite to be the Republican nominee is McHugh's chief of staff, Robert Taub. Hopefully the NRCC does not ruin our chances of winning this time by running very negative adds.
