Giannoulias to Face Kirk for US Senate

Illinois Treasurer Alexi Giannoulis beat former Chicago Inspector General David Hoffman 39 to 34 percent to win the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by Barack Obama. In November Giannoulias will face 5-term North Shore Congressman Mark Kirk, who dominated the Republican field with 56 percent of the vote. The primaries for Governor finished in virtual dead heats, with incumbent Gov. Pat Quinn holding a razor-thin lead over State Comptroller Dan Hynes on the Democratic side, and State Sen. Bill Brady holding an even smaller lead over his colleague Kirk Dillard on the Republican side. Settling these races may require recounts. Full primary results can be found here.
