The Tribune is reporting Oberweis defeated Truax, not the way you have it. ...and don't we have another party??
Bob B March 19, 2014 at 11:08 AM
Bender, these are the results strictly from DuPage County. Oberweis won the state but Truax carried DuPage.

What is really interesting is that the vote between Matune and Sandack was very close in DuPage County, but Sandack carried the three precincts in Will County (Bolingbrook) by a substantial margin.
Kathy S. March 19, 2014 at 11:08 PM
I agree with Bender. Where are the other party's results?
