Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Republican wins special election to fill U.S. House seat in Nebraska vacated by convicted lawmaker”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Republican state Sen. Mike Flood won a special election in Nebraska to fill the 1st District seat left vacant by the resignation of former Rep. Jeff Fortenberry.

Mr. Flood defeated Democrat Patty Pansing-Brooks, who is also a state senator, in the typically red district.

Fortenberry resigned from Congress in March after he was found guilty of lying to the FBI about an illegal campaign donation.

Mr. Flood will be sworn in immediately to fill the rest of Mr. Fortenberry’s term, which ends in January. His arrival in the U.S. House will decrease the Democratic majority from five seats to four seats.  

Mr. Flood and Ms. Pansing-Brooks will face off again in November to represent the district for the full two-year term.
