Update: With about nearly precincts reporting, incumbent U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush appears headed for an easy victory.
Democratic ticket: Rush, the longest-serving member of Illinois’s congressional delegation, faces three Democratic primary opponents: anti-violence activist Ameena Nuur Matthews, who was featured in the documentary “The Interrupters”; law student Sarah Gad, who is sharing her story of addiction recovery and a stint in Cook County Jail; and Robert Emmons, a 27-year-old nonprofit professional who’s worked for the Obama Foundation.
Republican ticket: The Democratic primary winner will face the sole Republican candidate, Philanise White.

Update: The Associated Press has called the race for progressive challenger Marie Newman over incumbent U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski. Newman thanked supporters for pushing her to victory, while Lipinski’s campaign canceled a scheduled media availability and says the race is too close to call. Meanwhile, Fricilone appears headed to victory.

Bill Lipinski.
