The new race for Missouri's 78th District State Rep seat kicks off Monday night.
Bruce Franks Jr. will be canvassing the neighborhoods, to drum up support.
As we reported Friday, a St. Louis judge ordered a special election in the district, amid questions over how absentee ballots were handled.
Franks, the challenger, got more votes in the August 2 primary than Incumbent Penny Hubbard. But Hubbard was declared the winner after the absentee votes were counted.
The special election will be held September 16th.
