LANSING, Michigan: In a turn of events, Kerry Bentivolio (R) won election to Michigan's 11th Congressional District for the upcoming term in congress, but he did not win the special election to fill the seat through the end of the current term. The special election was needed after Thaddeus McCotter failed to qualify for the election and then subsequently resigned his seat. The special election went to David Curson (D), who did not run in the general election.[1]

Curson will only be in the position through the end of this term, making him one of the shortest serving representatives in history, but that doesn't deter him. He has said that his extensive negotiating experience will be an asset as Congress works towards finding a solution to the looming fiscal cliff.[2]
