LaHood wins 16th Congressional race

Darin LaHood (left) and Lisa Haderlein (right) are competing for the 16th Congressional District, which spans up from the northern Illinois border to south of Peoria.

U.S. Rep. Darin LaHood won the 16th District over Elizabeth “Lisa” Haderlein, according to unofficial tallies reported by The Associated Press.

LaHood, a Republican, currently serves in the 18th District. Illinois lost a Congressional seat after the 2020 census. Under redistricting, LaHood chose to run in the 16th, formerly held by Adam Kinzinger, who chose not to seek re-election.

Haderlein did not run in the June primary but filed to become the Democratic spot on the ballot.

LaHood had 155,077 votes to 77,987 for Haderlein, a 66.5% to 33.5% margin, with 78% of the votes counted.

In the Lee County portion of the race, with all precincts reporting, LaHood led 7,705 to 4,211.

In Ogle County, with all precincts reporting, LaHood led 12,951 to 5,983.
