A Full House for the First Time in 2019 as Murphy, Bishop Seated

Republicans Greg Murphy (NC-3) and Dan Bishop (NC-9) were sworn in by Speaker Nancy Pelosi Tuesday. Both won special elections for vacant North Carolina congressional districts on September 10. 

For the first time in the 116th Congress, the U.S. House of Representatives is at 435 members. There are 235 Democrats, 199 Republicans and one independent.

The full house will last less than a week. Wisconsin GOP Rep. Sean Duffy has announced he will resign effective September 23 to tend to a family health issue. Gov. Tony Evers has not yet announced the date for a special election.
