Quoted from WeAskAmerica:
“The most intriguing result to us Illinois 8. Since 2004, Democrat Melissa Bean has repeatedly proved to be a winner in this district which many consider to be the most Republican-leaning area from the last redistricting. Bean defeated beleaguered Congressman Phil Crane to win the seat, and has held on since. This time out she ran a late, but aggressive and expensive campaign against Republican Joe Walsh who did not have the resources to respond.”
