Ventura Wins Democratic Primary In 43rd Senate Seat

Will County Board member Rachel Ventura wins the democratic primary for the 43rd state Senate seat once held by John Conner. Conner resigned earlier this year to take care of an ill family member and Eric Mattson was appointed. But yesterday’s primary election voters chose Ventura with 56% of the vote to Mattson’s 43%. The 43rd district stretches from Elwood to Lockport, Crest Hill, Joliet and Bolingbrook.
