Kinzinger wins congressional race, Rezin wins state senate race

Posted by wlpo on November 7, 2012

Republican Adam Kinzinger will be able to enjoy a second term in congress.  Kinzinger easily defeated Democrat Wonda Rohl in the 16th Congressional race.

Kinzinger celebrated the win in Rockford, a new territory in the redrawn district.  Kinzinger had to beat longtime Republican Congressman Don Manzullo in the March primary.  Kinzinger told AM 1220 WLPO that running against Rohl was easier than running against another Republican and member of Congress.

The race for the 38th State Senate was closer but incumbent Republican Sue Rezin held off her challenger retired school superintendent and democrat, Chris Benson.
