Rep. Tom Marino leaves office today after 8 years representing Union County. Governor Wolf has 10 days to set the date of a special election to fill the seat.
In a special election voters cast ballots for Republican or Democrat nominees previously determined by each party’s own process. The winner is sworn into Congress shortly after the election is certified.
GOP county chairs within the congressional district are working with PAGOP Chair Val Di Giorgio who will set the date for a conferee meeting once the special election date is determined. Conferees representing each county GOP will choose a nominee for the special election.
