This Week’s Trivia Question – 5/7/15

With Dan Donovan (R) winning the special congressional election in New York’s 11th District earlier this week, and with the special election in Mississippi’s 1st CD coming up on Tuesday, it seemed clear that we needed a “special” trivia question this week.

And that question is:  Of all the members of the House who first came to Congress via special election, who has been there the longest?
