Kinzinger tops Rohl in new district
Republican Adam Kinzinger defeated Democratic challenger Wanda Rohl on Tuesday, opening a big lead in early returns to secure his second term as an Illinois congressman.
With about 62 percent of precincts reporting, Kinzinger garnered 109,596 votes, or 61.3 percent, while Rohl collected only 69,161, according to unofficial vote totals. Kinzinger, of Channahon, said it was his district’s desire to see a smaller federal government that led to his victory in the 16th Congressional District.
“The district really wants to get jobs back, to get spending under control, and explore our domestic resources,” said Kinzinger, who is currently a congressman in Illinois’ 11th Congressional District. Kinzinger said he saw a lot of Democrats come out to support his candidacy.
