Incumbent Mike Quigley, a Democrat from Chicago, appears on his way to retaining his seat in the newly reconfigured 5th Congressional District

With 88 percent of precincts reporting, unofficial totals show Quigley leading all opponents with 69 percent of the vote. Republican challenger Dan Schmitt has 25 percent and Green Party candidate Nancy Wade has 6 percent.

"I'm honored to receive this support from my constituents and I'm ready to continue serving them for two more years, both in the district and in Washington," Quigley said Tuesday night.

The new 5th Congressional District includes parts of Bensenville, Des Plaines, Elmhurst, Hinsdale, Oak Brook, Oakbrook Terrace, Rosemont and Wood Dale.

"My new constituents will learn very quickly how accessible and responsive I am," Quigley said. "I'm working for everyone in every part of the district to keep reform measures out in front and making a concerted effort to improve the economy."
