Deerfield 2012 Election Night Results

Deerfield will be home to its Congressman and state senator. Check out our in-depth coverage of the results from the 10th Congressional District, the 29th State Senate and the Illinois 58th House Races.

No member of Congress has ever called Deerfield home.

No state senator has hailed from Deerfield in more than 40 years. 

By early January, the Village will be able to claim Rep. Elect Brad Schneider (D-Deerfield) and state Sen. Elect Julie Morrison (D-Deerfield). 

Victories by Schneider and Morrison were two of the significant outcomes from a night of election returns from the reelection of President Barack Obama to Congressional campaigns, Illinois General Assembly contests and county races. 

Here are some of the highlights:

Good luck! We shall see........but the numbers speak for them selves. 40B in debt and growing. Broke, broke, and more broke. Just because they win does not mean you are the smart guy......in my mind it means you did not do your homework! The people of IL just gave Madigan Emperor status, the Governor is meaningless, has no more veto power. Digest that, no check, no balance. And please tell us what good Ideas the Dems had?.....they pulled out the oldest and dirtiest tricks in the book. Abortion and Guns. They have no plan....but spend and tax! For the sake of all of us, I wish them the best, but track record says bend over and grab the lube.......

And given that people voted straight up party line means they did no homework on their canadates. They voted how they were told.....like Sheep. World will never change with that mentality.

Dold is the loser...the bastard who refuses to pay his serfs at Rose Pest any overtime while forcing them to work over 40 hrs. every week. How does he do it? Media doesn't care to mention, employees are terrified of being fired and/or sued, Republicans side with Dold because, most-likely, they too screw their employees a little...after all the bilionare needs a private plane hahahahaha. Dold..loser...it feels so good to drive around Northbrook and see Dold's election signs...the signs of a crook who lost.
