Moeller wins re-election in House District 43
Democratic incumbent Anna Moeller coasted to an easy victory in Tuesday's election against Republican challenger Andrew Cuming.
Moller had 13,771 votes to Cuming's 5,836 with 11 of 12 precincts reporting in Cook County and all 54 precincts in Kane County, unofficial results showed.
The House 43rd District includes most of Elgin and portions of Barrington Hills, Carpentersville, East Dundee and South Elgin.
Both Moeller and Cuming live in Elgin.
Moeller, 46, is a former Elgin City Council member who was appointed to the legislature in March 2014 and elected a few months later.
Cuming, 31, manages several properties in Elgin and twice ran unsuccessfully for Elgin City Council.
Both were unopposed in their primaries.
Moeller, who pledged not to take pension benefits from the state, said she supports raising wages for workers.
She introduced a bill, vetoed by Gov. Bruce Rauner, that would prevent employers from asking job candidates their salary history for the job, with fines up to $10,000 against those who violate that.
She also said she doesn't believe in term limits, because when re-election is off the table, legislators aren't accountable to voters or party leadership.
