A dead woman just won a hotly contested race for Congress in this dark blue city

Weird things happen in politics sometimes. 

In 2012, the town of Idyllwild, California elected a dog Mayor for life.

But a dead woman seriously just won a hotly contested Congressional race in this deep blue city. 

Waving the green flag in Indianapolis

Last week, voters in Indiana headed to their local polling precinct for the state primaries. 

Far-Left Incumbent Democrat Congressman Andre Carson – one of three Muslim Representatives, as expected, won his district 7 primary easily, winning 91.3% of the vote. 

However, the Republican Primary was a completely different story. 

The GOP race was a competitive four-way competition that went right down to the wire. 

The Associated Press reported that with 99% of precincts reporting, advertising professional Jennifer Pace won in a nailbiter with less than a third of the vote — 31.2%. 

Pace beat out retired Army Lt. Catherine Ping who tallied 29.9%, retired postal worker Phillip Davis at 25.7%, and former Evansville mayoral candidate Gabe Whitley at 13.2%. 

However, Pace will not be the next Representative of Indianapolis – and not just because of the blue streak running through Indiana’s seventh district. 

When a winner loses 

In an interesting but dark twist on the race, most voters didn’t know something pretty important about Pace when they pulled the lever for her. 

According to The Epoch Time, Pace passed away from a heart attack nearly two months before the primary. 

 

“No one knew she was dead,” one Indiana Twitter user tweeted. “Last week I researched the candidates online. I read their websites and questionnaire responses. I googled them. No mention of her death. No obituaries. Given her responses [sic] I strongly considered voting for her. Local media failed again.”

The Washington Examiner reported that even officials with the Hoosier State Republican Party had no knowledge of Pace’s passing. 

 

The same GOP spokesperson explained to The Examiner what will happen now that Pace’s candidacy is no longer valid. 

“The official results for the Republican Primary in CD-7 are not required to be certified by the Indiana Election Division until noon on May 24, 2024,” state GOP spokesperson Griffin Reid. “A caucus of Precinct Committeemen in the 7th District would be called by the State Chair to fill the candidate vacancy.”

So, Representative Carson’s opponent is still up for grabs. 

A cursed district?

However, the district’s history suggests that whoever the caucus of Precinct Committeemen selects has only a slim shot of making it to Congress. 

The district has voted for Democrats in every Presidential election since 2008 by at least 20 points and sometimes over 30 points. 

Meanwhile, since the district was restructured in 2002 to cover Indianapolis, it has only been represented by Democrats. 

In fact, it’s only been represented by Carsons. 

Andre Carson has been the district’s Congressman since 2006 – and has never had a close general election. 

Carson has only had one race that he didn’t win by at least 20-points, and he has never had a race go into the single digits. 

Before him, the district was represented by his grandmother, Julia Carson. 

She won three terms – including defeating legendary NFL running back and star Indianapolis Colt, Eric Dickerson. 

And in an ironic twist considering Pace’s unfortunate fate, Julia Carson died in office and was replaced by her grandson Andre.
