Weiner Resigns, Triggering a Special Election at Some Point

After Rep. Anthony Weiner announced his resignation from Congress, I asked a spokesman for Governor Cuomo when a special election will be held to fill his seat.

“The Governor will take the appropriate steps to ensure New Yorkers in the 9th district are fairly represented in Congress,” said Cuomo spokesman Josh Vlasto.

The governor also has the option not to call a special election, leaving the seat vacated until the 2012 election.
