Juliana Stratton defeats State Rep. Ken Dunkin in Democratic primary

CHICAGO (FOX 32) - Juliana Stratton has defeated Incumbent Ken Dunkin in the Democratic primary race for state representative.

President Barack Obama had endorsed Stratton, saying she will "stand up for our children, our seniors and our working families.”

The contest between Dunkin and Stratton was seen as a proxy battle between Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner and Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan. Rauner supported Dunkin and Madigan's union allies supported Stratton because Dunkin voted against pro-labor measures.
