U.S. Representative Sean Casten is the winner over fellow Representative Marie Newman.  Casten beat out Newman in yesterday’s Democratic primary for Illinois’ 6th District in the Chicago area.  Redistricting forced the incumbents to battle it out.  Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau earned the Republican nomination in the 6th Congressional district and will face Casten in the November general election.
