HARRISBURG - A special election is set for March 3 to fill the seat of a state senator who died from injuries suffered in a car crash. The 29th District seat held for seven terms by Sen. James Rhoades covers all of Schuylkill County and parts of Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe and Northampton Counties.

Even though he died Oct. 18, Rhoades was elected to an eighth term last month.
