8th District Democratic Primary Forum

We meet the candidates vying for the Democratic nomination in the 8th Congressional District. Raja Krishnamoorthi and Tammy Duckworth join Carol Marin on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm.

The recent Congressional remap in Illinois has created some unusual contests in the March 20 primary elections. In the 8th Congressional District, two candidates, who admittedly have very similar views on the issues, are competing to face Republican incumbent Joe Walsh in the November general election.

The new 8th Congressional District incorporates parts of Chicago, Elk Grove Village, Addison, York, Bloomingdale, Schaumburg, Hanover, Wayne, Milton, Elgin, Dundee, Barrington, Wheeling and Palatine.
