Two Democratic incumbents in Marion County voted out

Tuesday night's local election results saw incumbents hold their seats in Illinois, but it  wasn't the same story in Missouri. 

In Illinois, 18th District U.S. Congressman Darin LaHood easily defeated Democratic challenger Junius Rodriguez for a second time. In the Illinois House, 94th District State Representative Randy Frese easily won re-election over Democratic challenger Rich Cramsey. In Adams County, Fred Cory becomes the new County Treasurer, replacing Terry Asher, who didn't run for re-election. In other Illinois election results, Brown County voters approved an $800,000 bond issue to improve sidewalks and other infrastructure in Mt. Sterling. In Pike County, Bryce Glecker won the Circuit Clerk's office and David Greenwood easily defeated Jordan Gerard to win the Sheriff's race. He'll replace retiring Sheriff Paul Petty. In Hancock County, Don Little and Mark Menn won seats on the County Board.

In Missouri, 6th District U.S. Congressman Sam Graves easily won re-election, and Northeast Missouri will be represented in the Missouri Senate by Shelbina business woman Cindy O'Laughlin. The Republican easily beat Democrat Crystal Stephens in the 18th District race. The 5th District State House race went to Republican Louis Riggs of Hannibal. He easily defeated Democrat Joe Frese. In Marion County, two Democratic office holders were voted out of office. Presiding Commissioner Lyndon Bode lost to Republican J. David Lomax by over 500 votes, and Prosecuting Attorney David Clayton lost to Republican Luke Bryant by nearly 3 thousand votes. Ralls County voters rejected a 1/4 cent hike in the sales tax to re-build the New London Community Park. Sandy Lanier won the County Clerk's race. In Lewis County, Bonne Roberson won the County Treasurer's race, and Sharon Sapp won the County Clerk's race.
