Keicher, an insurance agent, was uncontested in the primary. The election was headlined by primaries on both sides of the governor's race, with billionaire J.B. Pritzker dominating the Democratic primary and incumbent Republican Governor Bruce Rauner surviving a strong challenge, the New York Times reports.
While turnout was generally poor (as is usually the case in IL midterm elections) Democrats held a considerable turnout advantage that may matter in November. But the narrow wins also exposed the danger traditional candidates face in what has been a turbulent election year. Voters in the suburban Chicago district supported Hillary Clinton over Trump in 2016, making it one of Democrats' top pick-up possibilities in November. In several districts now held by Republican congressmen - areas where Democrats have sometimes struggled to field even one candidate - about a half-dozen Democrats are seeking the party's nomination in Tuesday's primary. "According to Vox, Illinois now has the highest debt in the country, with about "$15 billion in unpaid bills and a pension debt of more than a quarter-trillion dollars".
On Tuesday Pritzker said "we should be honest about who we are as citizens and who we are as candidates". Rauner, however, beat his rivals by just 4 percentage points.
Rauner dismissed Ives as a fringe candidate, but then barely won the nomination.
The Republican Governors Association, meanwhile, labeled Pritzker a "self-serving IL political insider".

Lipinski called Newman and her supporters a "tea party of the left". And Newman said her campaign had had an effect.
Ms. Newman called Representative Lipinski, who is anti-abortion and voted against the Affordable Care Act, a "full-on Republican" whose positions no longer reflect those of the heavily Democratic district that includes parts of Chicago and its suburbs. Jan Schakowsky (D) and Luis V. Gutiérrez (D).
Rauner, a wealthy former private equity investor, made clear he won't go down without a fight. He also engaged in a long budget standoff with the state legislature that left IL $15 billion behind on its bills and triggered multiple downgrades that pushed the state's credit rating nearly to junk status. A bitter feud with the Democratic state House Speaker Michael "Boss" Madigan, the longest-serving member of any state or federal legislative body in USA history - and arguably one of the most powerful politicians in the country - left the state without an annual budget for two years. Even Kennedy spent $2 million of his own money on the race.
John Couvillon, president of JMC Analytic and Polling said the contests in IL showed a much higher degree of enthusiasm from Democrats "than was present in the primaries for the 2010 and 2014 midterm elections". In addition to a key governor battle, there will be contested elections for attorney general, all 18 Congressional seats, many races for General Assembly spots in the state House and Senate and a few county offices as well. Kwame Raouldefeated Pat Quinn, a former governor. As the Washington Post's Philip Bump wrote in this great piece, Democrats have performed so strongly in the various special and primary elections because they have turned out at levels much closer to presidential years than their Republican counterparts. That was almost double the number who cast Republican primary ballots and a roughly 25 percent increase over 2010, the last time Democrats had a competitive gubernatorial primary.
But one of the races that caught the attention of the media during the primary in IL was the Third District of Congress, which resulted in an out-of-mold Democrat and a neo-Nazi Republican.
