Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx claims nomination despite Jussie Smollett case, better-funded opponent

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx survived a well-financed challenge from newcomer Bill Conway in the Democratic primary Tuesday.

Foxx was surrounded by her husband and four daughters as she took the stage to the sounds of their cheers in a downtown hotel conference room. The space was kept largely empty as a precaution due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.

Standing next to his wife at his downtown campaign headquarters, Conway said, “Obviously things didn’t go our way today.”

“This race was heated, but at the end of the day as Democrats we both care deeply about our justice system, and I hope Ms. Foxx is able to enact so many of the reforms it desperately needs,” Conway said.
