Pennsylvania CD 12 (Open) **May Special Election-This election will be held on Tuesday May 18th. Republican Tim Burns is facing former Murtha aide Mark Critz. In what is considered by most a toss-up, Burns has to be considered the favorite as he has the better ground game and a very energetic GOP electorate.
Hawaii CD 1 (Open) **Special May Election-This election will take place four days after PA-12. The Republican, Charles Djou, is facing two Democrats. Djou should be able to win as the Democrats will split their votes. All ballots are being mailed in; there will be no voting on Saturday May 22nd. This should help Djou as Republican enthusiasm to win in the Presidents’ home is high.
-As of May 10 it looks like Djou has this one just about wrapped up. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has pulled out of HI-1 effectively seeding the seat to Djou.
