CLEVELAND – An Ohio Democrat elected earlier this month to succeed the late U.S. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones has also won a special congressional election in Cleveland to fill the final weeks of Tubbs Jones' unexpired term.
Entering the House early will give Fudge a seniority edge over the other newly elected members taking office in January. Fudge expects to take the oath of office Wednesday on the House floor.
The 58-year-old Tubbs Jones died Aug. 20 after suffering a brain hemorrhage caused by a ruptured aneurysm.
