Last week’s question was: Who is the most senior Democratic member of the House who first came to Congress via a special election?
The answer? Steny Hoyer. A Maryland Democrat and currently the House Majority Leader, Hoyer won a special election in May 1981 for the seat held by Gladys Noon Spellman, a fellow Democrat. Less than a week before the 1980 election, Spellman suffered a heart attack and fell into a coma, from which she never came out, and the following spring the House declared the seat vacant.
And the randomly selected winner is … Jeremiah Devlin-Ruelle of Washington, D.C. Jeremiah wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
