There have been several hard-fought special elections since Congress started their work in January. Most visible was the race to fill for Congressman Tom Price’s seat in Georgia’s sixth district. The Republican candidate, Karen Handel, won a close contest and will be the newest member of the 115th Congress. Kansas, Montana and South Carolina also held special elections and Republicans won each of these traditionally conservative districts while Democrats were victorious in the California 34th. Despite these hard-fought battles, the end results yielded no change to the party make-up of Congress.
