Paul McKinley will be the Republican candidate on the ballot for the April 9 general election to replace former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.
McKinley had just under 1,000 votes as of Feb. 27, 1:30 a.m., most of which came from South Suburban Cook County and Chicago.
Heavy snowfall throughout Election Day helped to keep voter turnout in the mid-teens, while the candidates made their way to several polling locations in the 2nd District.
