Jesse Jackson Jr. won re-election to Illinois' 2nd Congressional district by a landslide Tuesday night, beating his two opponents, Marcus Lewis and Brian Woodwoorth.
As of 8:30 p.m., Jackson had captured 71 percent of the vote with 52 percent of precincts reporting.
Jackson is not celebrating his victory in a swanky Chicago hotel room, or back stage at McCormick place with President Barack Obama watching the returns come in on the national race. He's reportedly spending the night at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.

Seriously Black people? Jesse Jackson Jr. Wins Reelection From Mayo Clinic
Unreal. Once again voting based on color and not character.
