Wheaton resident Jeanne Ives has won the race for the 42nd Illinois House District with about 62 percent of the vote.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting in DuPage County, Republican Jeanne Ives has won the 42nd Illinois House District race with about 62 percent of the vote, according to the DuPage County Election Commission website.

Ives received 31,033 votes, while Democrat William Adams received 19,268.

Adams said that although he lost, he was proud to win about 40 percent of the vote in what was commonly thought to be a highly Republican district.

He said he plans to run for the 42nd Illinois House seat again in the 2014 election.

In the meantime, Adams plans to continue working to address community issues and build his community contacts.

“I’m going to build my base, talk to voters, knock on doors,” Adams said.
