State Sen. Jim Oberweis declared victory over six other Republicans in the 14th Congressional District on Tuesday, preparing to square off against freshman Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood this fall in a typically red district that historically flipped blue in 2018.

Dairy magnate Oberweis declared victory with 25%, just edging past his state senate colleague Sue Rezin, who had 23% of the vote, and former U.S. Commerce Department adviser Catalina Lauf, who had 20% percent, with 86% of precincts reporting. Also running in the Republican race of loyal President Donald Trump supporters in the far west suburban congressional district were Jerry Evans, James T. “Jim” Master, Ted Gradel and Anthony Catella.
