Cheri Bustos Defeats Bobby Schilling In Illinois

Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.) defeated Republican Bobby Schilling in Illinois' 17th congressional district on Tuesday.

The race was a rematch from two years ago, when Schilling narrowly lost his seat to Bustos after serving in Congress for two years. During the campaign, Schilling called out Bustos for failing to keep a promise she made to the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board to cut her pay by 10 percent. Bustos defended not cutting her pay by saying that she only made the promise to the Tribune, but not to voters on the campaign trail.
