Former Madison County Judge Ann Callis picked up the Democratic nomination in Illinois’ 13th District Tuesday night and will now face a top target of national Democrats, freshman GOP Rep. Rodney Davis.
Callis defeated physics professor George Gollin 59 percent to 28 percent, with 56 percent of precincts reporting, according to The Associated Press. A third candidate, David Green, garnered 13 percent.
Davis defeated former Miss America Erika Harold 57 percent to 38 percent, with 65 percent of precincts reporting.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee backed Callis in the primary, and party operatives say she is the best candidate to defeat Davis in this swing district. President Barack Obama and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney each received 49 percent of the district’s vote in 2012.
