About this Article

Former Illinois legislator Robin Kelly captured the Democratic nomination Tuesday in the race to replace disgraced ex-U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., after a truncated campaign season where she got a boost from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's super PAC. The nomination all but assures that she'll sail through the April 9 general election and head to Washington, because the district is overwhelmingly Democratic.
