Biden Declared Winner For President; Underood Overtakes Oberweis in 14th District

Joe Biden has won the presidency, according to the Associated Press.

As of 10:30 a.m. Friday (Nov. 13, 2020) , Democrat Joe Biden was leading Republican Donald Trump — 290 electoral votes to 217, according to the Associated Press. A candidate needs 270 electoral votes to win the race.

The AP map presently shows two swing states up for grabs. Biden leads the count in Georgia (16 electoral votes). Trump is leading in North Carolina (15).

Mail-in ballots have been a deciding factor in the swing states.

Perhaps the most interesting contest among the Illinois congressional races is in the 14th District, where incumbent Democrat Lauren Underwood has overtaken Republican Jim Oberweis. Totals as of Friday have Underwood with 200,638 votes and Oberweis with 196,034.

As of 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 6, Oberweis led by 588 votes.

Earlier Updates

10PM UPDATE NOV. 3

Biden Wins Illinois And Kane County, But Election Up For Grabs Nationwide

Nationally, it’s looking a little like the 2016 election — at least so far on election night — in the race for president.

Statewide and locally, it’s been a blue wave for Joe Biden over President Donald Trump.

Dick Durbin easily won re-election to the U.S. Senate. He also is winning the majority in Kane County.

Congressional Races Update

Republican Jeanne Ives is leading Sean Casten in the 6th District.

Bill Foster is very likely to win re-election in the 11th District. He is facing Republican Rick Laib.

The Lauren Underwood (Dem) versus Jim Oberweis (Rep) race in the 14th District is neck and neck.

7:45PM UPDATE

AP: Durbin Already Projected Winner in U.S. Senate Race

Dick Durbin is the projected winner of the Illinois U.S. Senate seat, according to the Associated Press and multiple media outlets.

Durbin assumed office on Jan. 7, 1997. His current term ends on Jan. 3, 2021.

Republican candidate Mark Curran is a distant second.

More than 3.5 million people cast their ballots ahead of Election Day, according to the Chicago Tribune.

In Kane County, Durbin has 95,703 votes (54.8%) and Curran 69,202 votes (39.63%).

 

5:15PM UPDATE

AP Says We Might Not Know Presidential Outcome on Election Night

Many if not most newsrooms across the country use the Associated Press service to report nationwide election results.

And AP is saying we may not know who won the presidential election on Tuesday night.

“And if so, it does not necessarily mean anything is broken, fraudulent, corrupted or wrong,” Nicholas Riccardi reports.

What’s likely to slow things down is the number of mail-in votes that must be counted. Some states can begin counting weeks before Election Day, others are required to wait until Election Day to start counting.

And mail-in ballots postmarked by election day are counted in many states, as well. According to the Kane County Clerk’s Office website, the last day to count mail-in and provisional ballots is Nov. 17.

That doesn’t mean we won’t know some outcomes tonight. If there’s a wide enough margin, media organizations are likely to announce winners and candidates will deliver concession and victory speeches.

“But in a close race, more of the vote may need to be counted before the AP can call a winner,” Riccardi said.
