A special election was held to fill her House seat on March 31, with Republican James Tedisco and Democrat Scott Murphy the two candidates. After the two finished in a near tie on election night, absentee ballots turned up a 700 vote margin for Murphy, despite the ballots being sent out to far more Republicans than Democrats. Murphy won the seat.
