New info source for U.S. House race


It's two weeks before primary election day, and — with the Knight  News Innovation Lab at Northwestern University — Evanston Now is launching a new way for readers to keep tabs congressional races in Illinois — including the one here in the 9th District.

The new site tracks social media comments about the candidates as well as news stories and campaign finance reports to provide insight into the campaigns.

Check out the contest in the Democratic primary between incumbent Jan Schakowsky and challenger Simon Ribeiro here, or see what's up with Republican Tim Wolfe's uncontested coast to his party's nomination here.

Or you can use a map to start looking into any of the other congressional races around the state.
