Find coverage of the various congressional matchups throughout the Patch network.
Tuesday, November 6, 2012
While many of northern Illinois' congressional races left little in the way of doubt, a few provided down-to-the-wire drama and competitiveness. Judy Biggert and Bill Foster were in a dead heat as Election Day approached, with Foster emerging victorious, according to unofficial totals. And Joe Walsh and Tammy Duckworth engaged in a bitter mudfest, with Walsh being tossed out by voters. Jesse Jackson Jr. didn't campaign at all, citing health issues, yet won-reelection, and Adam Kinzinger, Dan Lipinski, Danny Davis and Peter Roskam didn't feel they had to. Coverage of the various congressional races can be viewed throughout the Patch network.

Democratic nominee Dennis Anderson will take on uncontested Republican in November.
Dennis Anderson appears to be the Democratic nominee for the 14th Congressional District after leading the race with 74 percent of the vote. Anderson slugged it out with his opponent, Democrat Jonathan Farnick, and will now take on the uncontested U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren in November. The 14th Congressional District takes in parts of seven northern Illinois counties, including Dekalb, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry and Will. These results are the total of all currently reporting counties plus the Aurora Election Commission. Anderson is easily leading after 98 percent of total precincts reporting.
