    I'm not sure it counts as a special election, because it was a runoff from the general election, but Joe Cao's win over William Jefferson in LA-01 in 2008 was a pretty big upset.

    You should add "indicted incumbent" to your list of reasons someone of the "wrong" party can win a special election.
