Despite Habeeb Retirement, Republicans Are Likely to Maintain Majority in House of Delegates (WVTF)

Democrats are hoping that the Republican House speaker will call for the special election in November, when voters will be going to the polls in the general election. But Stephen Farnsworth at the University of Mary Washington suspects Republicans will probably want it to be sooner than that to avoid the wave of Democratic voters.

“In the anti-Trump environment where Democratic candidates have been over-performing everywhere, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if this election were held on a day other than November 6th.”
