There’s a similar battle for the Democratic nomination for Attorney General, with eight candidates joining two Republican hopefuls to replace incumbent Democrat Lisa Madigan, who is not running for reelection.
In the 18th District Congressional race, Republican incumbent Darin LaHood is challenged by Donald Rients, while Democrat voters choose from among Brian Deters, Junius Rodriguez and Darrel Miller for a spot on the November ballot.
In the Illinois General Assembly, the only contest in western Illinois is in the 100th District State Representative race, where Republican incumbent C.D. Davidsmeyer faces a challenge from Jonas Petty.
