Hutchinson's opponent, Tuck Marshall, commended the senator for running a clean campaign.
Toi Hutchinson will remain the state senator for the 40th District after a victory over Frankfort challenger Joseph "Tuck" Marshall. Hutchinson grabbed 80 percent of the votes in south suburban Cook County, with all precincts reported. She took just under 55 percent of the votes in Kankakee County, with all precincts reported. Marshall beat out Hutchinson in Will County, taking just more than 56 percent of the votes with all precincts reported. Hutchinson said maintaining her seat in the 40th District is "wonderful," and the state senator said she respected her opponent's challenge.

The go-to guide for all the information Heights residents need to know for Election Day.
For the past several months, you've watched as we followed Jesse Jackson Jr.'s (D) elusive behavior and eventual diagnosis with Bipolar II Disorder—and the responses of opponents Marcus Lewis (I) and Brian Woodworth (R). You've also seen Lewis' critical response to a leaked audio recording of a pastor's phone conversation with Congressman Jackson—and the media.

The Tribune likes two Democrats and one Republican in the Southland's State Senate races. Hutchinson, Cunningham and Montalvo are endorsed.
The editorial board of the Chicago Tribune just wrapped up its endorsements for State Senate candidates, giving the nod to two Democrats and one Republican in Chicago’s south suburban districts — the 18th, 19th and 40th. In the 18th, Barbara Ruth Bellar seems built for Tribune favor — or a talk show — but the endorsement went to Democrat Bill Cunningham. Republican Edgar Montalvo, of Tinley Park, a pro-business underdog, won the paper’s backing over Democrat Michael Hastings of Orland Hills. Both are military men — Montalvo served two Army tours in Iraq; Hastings graduated from West Point and served one tour.

Frankfort Republican Tuck Marshall is slated to run against Democratic incumbent Toi Hutchinson, of Olympia Fields, for the 40th District state Senate seat. Newly drawn maps bring Hutchinson's district into some of Frankfort and New Lenox.
Fearing a Cook County takeover of Will County politics, a Frankfort man is planning to run for a state Senate seat against Democratic incumbent Toi Hutchinson of the Chicago Heights area. J.C. "Tuck" Marshall, 65, was slated by the Will County Republican Party to oppose Hutchinson in the 2012 election for Illinois' 40th District Senate seat. Newly drawn district maps extended Hutchinson's reach to portions of Kankakee and Will County, including the southern parts of Frankfort and New Lenox. Her district still represents parts of Flossmoor and Chicago Heights as well. New maps also brought longtime Chicago Democrat Bobby Rush's district into the south suburbs. "I bring a Will County perspective," Marshall said. "We’re more rural. People …
