Schneider Defeats Dold In Illinois' 10th Congressional District

Former one-term Democratic Congressman Brad Schneider has won Illinois' 10th congressional district seat from Republican U.S. Rep. Bob Dold.

This year marked the third consecutive matchup between Dold and Schneider in the North Shore's 10th congressional district. The race, which political analysts expected to be a toss-up, was tight throughout the night. Schneider was trailing Dold for most of the evening, and pulled ahead at the very end after early voting results were included.

At about 10:30 p.m., news of Schneider's win broke at his election night party at the Northbrook Hilton. The crowd erupted in chants of "Yes we did!" 

During his victory speech, Schneider thanked Dold for "his service to our country." He also congratulated Tammy Duckworth on her U.S. Senate win and Raja Krishnamoorthi on his victory in the 8th congressional district. 

Schneider called the race's outcome "a very bright spot in an otherwise dark evening."

"But it makes this victory all that more important," the congressman continued, "because you all have sent to Washington, are sending to Washington, a voice, a fighter, who's gonna stand strong and fight for the values and the priorities we all hold dear."

In 2012, Schneider defeated Dold, unseating the then-freshman incumbent. Dold defeated Schneider to regain his seat in 2014.

"Two years ago, we stood in this very same room, both very different circumstances," Schneider said. "As I considered the decision to run again, I spoke with many of you, neighbors, people throughout the district, and I heard the very same concerns that motivated me to run in the first place."

District residents, he said, are most concerned about the "broken system" in Washington "that is more focused on fighting each other than solving problems."

"That's why I decided to run - to fight for your priorities and values and to finally start tackling the challenges in Washington and here at home."

Schneider called for bipartisanship in Congress.

"To my Republican friends I say this: Let's seek common ground to move us forward," he said. "We won't agree on all the details but we cannot allow partisanship to block our progress. And for all of the challenges we face, I have no doubt -- and I never will doubt -- that our best days as a country are still ahead of us."

Among Schneider's supporters is former Buffalo Grove Mayor Elliott Hartstein.

"I believe in Brad. I think he's someone who can really make a difference," Hartstein told Progress Illinois. "I know he's someone who really knows how to work with people on both sides of the aisle. I think that's why his colleagues came into the district over the last several months and said, 'We need Brad back in Congress.' And I believe we need him back. And thank goodness this district wants Brad back in Congress."

Schneider's win is a "huge victory," added supporter Steve Sheffey.

"If Trump wins, we'll need a strong leader like Brad Schneider in Congress," Sheffey added. "I'm really glad he won. He deserves to win."

Brad Schneider is absolutely the best leader we could ever get! Thanks to him we finally have some chances to find a common ground with other political parties. I think he's the right person, especially now, when Trump's gonna be the president.
