10th Congressional District
One of the most hotly-contested Congressional races in the country has been in the 10th District of Illinois, which encompasses most of Lake County, and part of northern Cook County.
The candidates for the tenth congressional district sparred this morning over healthcare, abortion and other issues in a rematch of a very close race two years ago.
First-term Republican Congressman Bob Dold has conceded his northeastern Illinois congressional seat to Democratic challenger Brad Schneider.
Republican businessman Robert Dold has won the state’s only open congressional seat by narrowly defeating three-time Democratic candidate Dan Seals.
Democrat Dan Seals or Republican Bob Dold will replace Mark Kirk in what’s turning out to be a nasty battle in the north suburban 10th Congressional District.
