Fine, Gabel, Gong-Gershowitz on the way to retain Democratic legislative seats on the North Shore

Three North Shore Democrats, political veterans Laura Fine and Robyn Gabel, and newcomer Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz, appeared to easily win their state Senate and House races over Republican opponents, according to unofficial results Tuesday.

Fine, a Glenview resident who previously served three terms in the Illinois House, sought her first term in the Illinois Senate’s 9th District, and was leading Republican Joan McCarthy-Lasonde of Wilmette with 128 of 154 precincts reporting, Fine had about 71.5 percent of the votes counted, to McCarthy-Lasonde’s 28.5 percent.

Fine was running to succeed outgoing Evanston Democrat Daniel Biss, who instead ran and lost in the Democratic gubernatorial primary.

“I’ll feel good once all the votes are in,” said Fine, who said she’d started her day shortly after 4 a.m. “But I’m feeling very positive.”
