Pennsylvania Rep. Tom Marino (R-Williamsport) resigned from the House at the end of January ostensibly to accept a position in the private sector, but now we are learning he also has a health condition. This creates a special election in the north-central Pennsylvania seat that Gov. Tom Wolf (D) has scheduled to be filled on May 21st, in conjunction with the state’s municipal primary day. The parties are to meet in a special district convention to decide nominees. The Republican leaders announced that they have chosen March 2nd as their convention day. Democrats are likely to soon follow with their announcement, and we can expect their party convention to be in a similar time frame.
