Minnesota will delay the November congressional election for its 2nd District after the secretary of state's office confirmed third-party candidate Adam Weeks' death on Thursday.

Weeks, 38, was a farmer running under the Legal Marijuana Now Party — which received 5.3% of the vote in the state's 2018 auditor race — against freshman Democratic Rep. Angie Craig.

"I want to offer condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Weeks. The loss of any of us is a tragedy, and that’s felt especially in someone who has put his energy into a campaign to serve in public office," Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon said in a Thursday statement.

State law says that if a major party nominee dies 79 days ahead of the Nov. 3 election, the election will be postponed until a special election is held on the second Tuesday of February, or Feb. 9 in 2021.
