Michael Cloud was sworn in as the new representative for Texas' 27th congressional district late Tuesday. Cloud emerged victorious in a field of nine in a June 30 special election.
Republicans now hold 236 seats, Democrats 193 with 6 vacancies.
The next special election will be in Ohio's 12th congressional district on August 7th. This opening was created when Republican Pat Tiberi resigned in January. This race is seen as toss-up to leans Republican by various pundits, although the two most recent polls (JMC, Monmouth) had the GOP nominee up by about 10 points.
