IL-14: Hastert Resigning

We knew he was retiring, did we know he was resigning?

Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert will not complete his term. He will apparently announce his resignation tomorrow triggering a special election.

Hastert's resignation, if before December 11th, would lead to three vacant Republican seats, leaving them with a total of 199 votes. After yesterday's election in Massachusetts, all 233 Democratic seats are filled.
