GOP state Sen LaHood to replace ex-US Rep Schock of Illinois

( KTRS ) Illinois state Sen. Darin LaHood has won a special election to replace disgraced former U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock.

The outcome of Thursday’s election will bring a familiar name to Washington, D.C., and the number of House members back to 435.

LaHood is the son of former U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, a longtime congressman.
