Obama wins Ill.; Dems pick up 3 US House seats
CHICAGO (AP) — Democrats landed most of the big prizes on the Illinois ballot Tuesday, picking up three congressional seats Republicans won two years ago, while President Barack Obama scored an easy home-state victory.
U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh lost to Iraq war veteran Tammy Duckworth; U.S. Rep. Bobby Schilling fell to Cheri Bustos; and longtime U.S. Rep. Judy Biggert lost her seat to challenger Bill Foster.
Former National Guard chief Bill Enyart kept a vacated seat in southern Illinois in Democratic hands. The other two closely watched congressional races were too close to call.
