10th District ballot will look familiar to voters
If the rematch for Congress in the northern suburbs’ 10th District sounds unusual to voters, they don’t have to look far to find a similar example.
Republican Bob Dold of Kenilworth is trying to return to Congress after losing the seat to Democratic U.S. Rep. Brad Schneider of Deerfield two years ago.
Not far away, Democratic U.S. Rep. Bill Foster of Naperville pulled off a return trip to Washington, D.C., when he won a congressional seat two years after losing one.
Like Schneider, Foster first went to Congress by winning a seat long held by Republicans. After his loss in 2010, Foster moved from Geneva to Naperville and into a newly drawn 11th District that was more suited to a Democratic victory. He won in 2012 in the district, which includes parts of southern DuPage, eastern Kane and central Will counties.
