    #2 is the odds-on favorite, sorta Dems took this as an opportunity - probably could have helped engineer the primary win for the set-up. A special election with a short time from the primary win/nomination and no smaller party candidates or write-in grassroots organizations to interfere. A delay of a special election seems fairest to voters here actually, but nothing here bodes well for the future of special elections or Roy Moore.

    The political party went with the primary election winner as the candidate - a re-primary seems better for GOP voters to make the decision - THAT won't happen. The increasing number of woman coming forward with allegations is making them less credible and if all were true then there are alot more people who knew about the conduct for a long time. An "avalanche of woman" are coming forward (Hollywood / politics) . . . that term made me think of Mittens Romney's "binders of woman" - lol

    A special election to fill a Senate seat seems bad and costly in the first place - some states just have the Governor appoint the remaining term. A delay, or better find a constitutional reason that no special election is even needed, would give a party the chance to pull a candidate after a primary. Voters deciding this through the mucky waters doesn't sound fair either. July 2016 when Comey announced that 7 emails were Top Secret with Hilly's going off the reservation I think some people wondered how a candidate could be pulled by a political party after the primary season. A state special election (for a federal office) could be a test of what to do maybe - can a political party rescind a nomination after a primary in extending circumstances (?) I dunno.

    Making Unaffordable insurance mandatory takes away the freedom of choice for one's individual health . . . the mandate has to go, and should have never been claimed as constitutional in the first place imo. Senators Ron Johnson, Flake, Collins, Corker apparently among the GOP on fence for a potential Senate tax code bill removing the mandate, but even some Dems that are not socialists should seem to favor a "choice" at least.

    NPR seemed proud to announce this morning that "3 more accusers have come forward, bringing the total to 8" But it makes no sense that "voters will have to be the jurors that decide this" - they'll need evidence. The Governor or an election commission should decide to delay a very Special Election in this case at least but I dunno.

    I hope you are right - it is what is needed and through Senate now at this point seems best way. A projection of 4 million that would go without coverage if not mandated seems lower than I'd guess, though.
