    From NBC's Mark Murray
    According to Pennsylvania's Secretary of State's office, Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell (D) has 10 days to set a date for a special election to fill the remainder of John Murtha's term. That date cannot come any sooner than 60 days after issuing this writ of election -- so the earliest that it could occur is in two months.

    To save money, it is possible that Rendell decides to wrap this special election into the state's already-scheduled May 18 primary elections. (So you could have two different tracks of races for this congressional seat -- the Democratic and GOP primaries, and the special election to fill out the remainder of Murtha's term.)

    The special election has the potential to be competitive. Murtha has controlled this seat since 1974. But John McCain narrowly won the district in 2008. In fact, Murtha's district was the only congressional seat in the country that voted for John Kerry in 2004 and for McCain in '08.

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
