Illinois Primary Election Wrap-up

WBEZ's Steve Edwards and Richard Steele have analysis about some of the primary results and what they mean for the general election and the national stage. But first, there was one race that widen pretty early in the evening. Alderman Toni Preckwinkle won the Democratic nomination for Cook County Board President. She'll face former Republican State Senator Roger Keats and Green Party candidate Tom Tresser in the November election. Mr. Keats joins us now by phone to discuss the results and what's ahead. And, Alderman Preckwinkle joins later in the show.

Music Button: Medeski, Martin and Wood, "Pappy Check," from the release Note Bleu: Best of the Blue Note Years 1998-2005 (EMI)
