John Jung and Tina Hill, two of three Republican incumbents are positioned to be re-nominated in today’s primary election, but the third is in fifth place with 44% of the vote counted.
Newcomer Mike Skala holds first place.
Long-time member Virginia Peschke ran first the last primary election, even though she waited until less than two weeks before the election to put out signs.
I didn’t see any signs this year, but didn’t foray far into District 5 at the end of the campaign.
In any event newcomer, Michael Rein is leading her by 8 votes, so this is going to be a nail-biter.

With all of the precinct of McHenry County Board District 5 reporting, but early and absentee votes not having been folded in, newcomer Michael Rein is edging out veteran Virginia Peschke by a mere 26 votes.
