Kelly wins Dem. nod for ex-Rep. Jackson Jr.'s seat

CHICAGO (AP) 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. The Republican nomination is also being chosen Tuesday night.

From a crowded field of candidates in the Chicago-area district, Kelly emerged early as a leader on gun-control issues. The former state representative from Matteson, a south Chicago suburb, favors an assault weapons ban.

3. Seriously only 247 votes on the Republican side?

The asshat Republican won with 81 votes. I could have printed out calenders with nude pictures of myself and gotten more votes than that.

*They'd only vote for me if I promised not to publish nude photos again*
