And at the state level, Bruce Rauner topped the polls with just over 50% of the vote, becoming the next Governor of Illinois.
“In election 2014 I didn’t see any big surprises, I think the Governor’s race between Rauner and Quinn was one that was kind of up in the air, going on all night, pretty close. Otherwise I think its what a lot of pollsters expected,” Kenn Miller, Political Commentator.
Nationally, the Republicans ruled much of the night, taking back control of the House and expanding their voice in the Senate.
