State Rep. Keith Farnham breezed to re-election Tuesday.
Farnham ran unopposed in the Democratic primary and did not have an official Republican opponent in the general election for the Elgin-based 43rd House District. Richard Evans, an accountant from Elgin, filed to run on the Constitution Party ticket but was removed at the end of July.
Evans kept his name in the race as a write-in candidate. No information was available at press time on the number of votes Evans may have received.
Farnham, of Elgin, has served in the State House since 2009 when he defeated Ruth Munson for the position. He said Tuesday he wants to start a committee in the House to concentrate on small and mid-size manufacturers and economic development to figure out how to better attract businesses to Illinois.
