Elections

2012 election

Incumbent Representative Joe Walsh was drawn out of the district for 2012 by 2011 redistricting, although a candidate is not required to live in the district to be eligible to run for a seat in Congress.[5] Democrat Raja Krishnamoorthi of Hoffman Estates announced his candidacy for the seat in late May 2011. In July 2011, Democrat Tammy Duckworth also announced plans to run for the seat.[6] Duckworth won the Democratic nomination on March 20, 2012. Duckworth defeated Walsh in the general election on November 6, 2012.
