Gov. Pritzker wins second term
( Fox )
The Fox News Decision Desk says that Democratic Governor JB Pritzker will win a second term. He prevails over GOP challenger Darren Bailey.
Decision Desk also projects that Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth will defeat Republican attorney Kathy Salvi. Duckworth is an Iraq War veteran and Purple Heart recipient.
In Illinois, which sets no term-limits on the governor's seat, the two battled it out during several debates and Bailey pressed Pritzker on various critical midterm issues.
During the last debate of the cycle, Bailey blamed the Democrat incumbent for the rise of violent crime in the state, specifically in one of the country's crime hotspots, the city of Chicago.
