5th Congressional District Race

The date has been set. The special election for Illinois' 5th Congressional District seat will be held on April 7, 2009, with a special primary election to be held on March 3. This election is to fill the seat of Rahm Emanuel, incoming Chief of Staff to President-elect Barack Obama.

We have come into office as the 43rd Ward Democrats pledged to fair government, openness and transparency. We, therefore, support this open primary and are committed to providing a platform for all the those candidates who have announced their run for this seat.

We will be providing contact and event information for each candidate and keep the community up to date and informed as the petitioning begins and we learn more about each candidate's stance on the issues important to Progressive Democrats.

We are committed to hosting a public forum for voters in the 43rd Ward so that we can all be educated about the candidates in this very important race.

The candidates who have thus far filed with the FEC are listed on the right.
