Shelley Adler

This year, Shelley Adler, the widow of the late Rep. John H. Adler (D-N.J.), is running for the seat that her late husband occupied from 2009 to 2011. That, in itself, isn't too unusual. According to the U.S. House of Representatives website, 49 other congressional widows have been elected to the House or Senate seats once held by their husbands.
