Last week’s question was: Of all the members of the House who first came to Congress via special election, who has been there the longest?
The answer: Don Young. The Alaska Republican won a special election in 1973 following the death of Nick Begich, who disappeared in a presumed plane crash in October of 1972. Despite that, Begich still defeated the GOP candidate the next month … who happened to be Don Young.
