As predicted in this space, former California state Sen. Jackie Speier easily won a special election yesterday to replace the late Bay Area Congressman Tom Lantos. Speier, who had decided to challenge Lantos prior to his death, will seek nomination to a full term in June.
Update: Add Speier to Hillary Clinton's superdelegate total.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
