Voters in disgraced Rep. Mark Souder’s (R-Ind.) district will have to do double duty in November.
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) announced Friday that the special election in the state's 3rd district will take place on Nov. 2., the same day as the general election.
A spokesman for the Indiana Secretary of State's office said voters will cast one ballot for a candidate to serve out the remaining months of Souder's term and another for a general election candidate to takeover when the term expires.
Democrats already have their nominee for November -- 2006 nominee Tom Hayhurst -- and he's not expected to be challenged for the nod in the special. Souder had filed to run again and then withdrew after admitting he had an affair with a part-time female aide.
Republicans will nominate a candidate for the special and the general through a caucus process set for June 12, according to a spokesman for the Indiana GOP. State Reps. Wes Culver and Randy Borror and state Sen. Marlin Stutzman are in the race for the nod.
