Patlak leads; Alvarez, Brown win big in Cook
Nov 6, 2012 11:59 PM -
Democrats continued their domination of Cook County's top elected offices Tuesday, with incumbents State's Attorney Anita Alvarez and Circuit Court Clerk Dorothy Brown appearing to sail to victory with considerable margins. With about 98 percent of precincts reporting, unofficial election results also showed Democrats prevailing in races for the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District board and recorder of deeds. Appearing to defy the trend was Wheeling Republican Dan Patlak, who was leading in a close race for the Board of Review.
