2022 Election: 11th Congressional District
This November McHenry County voters weighed in on four of Illinois’ 18 congressional and one U.S. Senate race.
Several McHenry County, state and federal races are on the ballot in this year's midterm, including the governor's race and an amendment to the Illinois Constitution.
The race for Illinois governor won’t be the only one on Tuesday’s ballot. With the redrawing of the state’s political maps, the make-up of the entire McHenry County Board and both the U.S. and Illinois houses of representatives will be determined, along several other races.
In the 6th District, 11th District and 14th District, Republican challengers are trying to unseat Democratic incumbents. The races have been costly, with most of the campaigns raising and spending millions to share their messages with voters through TV ads and other means.
A political action committee largely funded by conservative Lake Forest billionaire Richard Uihlein dumped at least $526,580 into five Chicago-area congressional races last month, records show.
Democratic U.S. Rep. Bill Foster of Naperville believes the private ownership and sale of military-style weapons like those used in several mass shootings, including this summer in Highland Park, should be outlawed.
Democratic U.S. Rep. Bill Foster of Naperville outraised and outspent Republican challenger Catalina Lauf of Woodstock during the year’s third quarter, newly released documents show.
Candidates for the Republican Party across local, state and federal races, were in Crystal Lake on Wednesday to meet with residents and talk about the state of Illinois, the SAFE-T Act and other issues.
Even though the claim has been debunked as a hoax, Republican congressional candidate Catalina Lauf is standing by a recent tweet in which she said some schools provide litter boxes for students who like pretending they’re anthropomorphic animals.
