4 winners and 2 losers in the Illinois primary election
Illinois primary voters went to the polls for the 2018 midterms Tuesday night, where Chicago-style machine politics showed it’s still got what it takes to win.
For Republicans, that means Gov. Bruce Rauner hung on, beating back a far-right challenger who ran ads that even the state GOP rejected. Rauner already has a target on his back since Donald Trump lost the state by 20 points in November. Plus, Rauner has been in charge through multiple financial crises, including higher education and state employee pensions.
For Democrat J.B. Pritzker, the fall is shaping up to be high-stakes. Illinois is the Democratic Party’s best shot to flip a governor’s mansion. Other winners on the Democratic ticket tonight are likely winners in November as well.
