SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WTVO) — U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D) was able to hold off a challenge from former Chicago-area sheriff Mark Curran (R) in Tuesday’s race.
Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, was first elected in 1996 and has handily won each election since then.
Durbin, who was unopposed in the primary, issued a statement then saying he was honored to continue the campaign and work to “restore this nation to the honorable, decent country that we know and love.”
