2014 Election News

Illinois Senator Dick Durbin, the three-term Democrat up for re-election in 2014, outdid President-to-be Barack Obama in his own adoptive neighborhood in 2008.  Obama got the nod from 63% of Illinois voters; Durbin earned a 69% share.  Now seeking a fourth term, Durbin will enjoy another easy path to back to Washington.

Republicans have a tough time in the Land of Lincoln.  They can occasionally engineer competitive contests in statewide election, but the 2014 Illinois Senate Race will not be close.  Instead, GOP heavy hitters are deciding to jump into the race against embattled Governor Pat Quinn rather than trying to topple an Illinois stalwart in Senator Durbin.

Of the Republicans who are willing to play the prohibitive underdog in the Senate race, Illinois State Senator Jim Oberweis appears poised to win the GOP nomination.  In a Public Policy Polling survey taken just before Thanksgiving, Oberweis claimed support from 43% of those polled.  His nearest competitior could muster just 7%.  But it doesn't matter who gets to carry the GOP banner; Durbin is a shoo-in.

Preliminary projection:  Solid DEM Hold
