Robin Kelly Wins Democratic Nomination for 2nd Congressional District Seat
Kelly will appear on the general election ballot in April.
After less than three months of campaigning, Robin Kelly has solidified her place on the ballot for the April 9 general election to replace former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.
Candidate Debbie Halvorson’s media contact Sean Howard told Patch Halvorson called Kelly around 8 p.m. to concede, offering well wishes. They agreed to meet up soon to discuss Kelly’s agenda.
Kelly had just shy of 31,000 votes as of Feb. 27 1:30 a.m., most of which came from South Suburban Cook County (that's us).
Heavy snowfall throughout Election Day helped to keep voter turnout in the mid-teens, while the candidates made their way to several polling locations in the 2nd District.
