IllinoisELECTION RESULTS

What to watch

Rep. Sean Casten (D) is projected to win the District 6 race.

Nikki Budzinski (D) is projected to win the District 13 race.

Rep. Lauren Underwood (D) is projected to win the District 14 race.

Eric Sorensen (D) is projected to win the District 17 race.

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D) is projected to win the Senate race.

Governor

Incumbent Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) is considered likely to win against state Sen. Darren Bailey (R), whom Democrats elevated in the primary because of his more extreme views, believing him to be the weaker candidate on the November ballot. An election denier, Bailey has been endorsed by Donald Trump, supports a total abortion ban and has called Chicago a “hellhole,” once proposing to separate it from the state. 

Pritzker (D) is projected to win. An estimated 98.2 percent of votes have been counted.

U.S. House

Two open seats in the 13th and 17th districts are drawing the most attention. (The 17th, home to retiring Democratic Rep. Cheri Bustos, is the most competitive.) Regan Deering, an election denier and owner of a Huntington Learning Center, is the GOP nominee in the 13th, which leans Democratic per the Cook Political Report, and will face off with Nikki Budzinski (D), a former Pritzker labor aide who has served as chief of staff for President Biden’s Office of Management and Budget.

In the 17th district, which is rated a toss-up by Cook, Eric Sorensen (D), a former meteorologist, will compete against lawyer Esther Joy King (R).

The Post estimated the lean of 2022 congressional districts using 2020 presidential results by precinct from Decision Desk HQ and estimates where actual votes at the precinct level were unavailable. Districts classified as “Strong Biden” and “Strong Trump” show where a candidate is estimated to have won by 15 percentage points or more. “Lean Biden” and “Lean Trump” districts had estimated vote margins between five and 15 points. “Close” districts show an estimated margin within five points.
