Local Congressional Races Heat Up Ahead Of Primary

The Morning Shift has paid special attention to two key Illinois political races ahead of the March 20th primaries — governor and attorney general. We’ve had most of the candidates for those offices taking questions from us or from listeners. But there are plenty of other hotly contested primaries happening in a few weeks, including those for Congress. We talk about the personalities and the issues involved in the state’s 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th congressional districts.
