How the candidates fared in Bureau County

Pritzker, Quinn, Dady carried county for Dems; Rauner, Harold and Kinzinger for Republicans

PRINCETON — The votes have been counted, and the unofficial results are in.

How did Democratic and Republican candidates fare in Tuesday’s General Primary Election?

Democrat J.B. Pritzker carried Bureau County on his way to capturing his party’s nomination for governor. Incumbent Gov. Bruce Rauner also carried Bureau County and won the Republican nomination in his bid for a second term.

Although former Gov. Pat Quinn carried Bureau County in a comeback bid for attorney general, the Democratic nomination was won statewide by state Sen. Kwame Raoul. On the Republican side, Erica Harold carried the county on her way to winning the nomination statewide.

And Rockford attorney Sara Dady carried Bureau County and won the Democratic nomination over three opponents for U.S. Congress in the 16th District. Her opponent will be sitting U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who carried the county and won the Republican nomination over his opponent.
