1929 Election Cycle
A pair of rare special elections to the U.S. House took place in 1929. Republicans held the Minneapolis-based 5th CD in June with nominee Lieutenant Governor William Nolan. In October, Farmer-Laborite Paul John Kvale held the 7th CD seat for his party previously occupied by his father Ole Kvale who died in office. These were just the second and third special elections to the U.S. House held in state history.
