Eight of the 17 Congressmen - five Democrats and three Republicans - running next year will face primary opposition. Only the race against Democratic Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-Western Springs/Chicago suburbs) looks to have the potential of becoming a serious contest, however. Mr. Lipinski’s nomination opponent is media consultant Marie Newman, a first-time candidate but one who has support from many liberal ideological groups, particularly those on the social issues front. Rep. Lipinski has a large resource advantage to begin the campaign. Ms. Newman had already raised over $270,000 at the end of September, but had also spent well over half of her treasury.
