The special election was required to be held within 115 days of Jackson's resignation. It was won by Democratic candidate Robin Kelly, formerly the Chief Administrative Officer of Cook County. Pat Quinn, the Governor of Illinois, set the primary elections for February 26, coinciding with municipal primary elections, and initially set the general election for March 19. However, legislation was enacted at Quinn's request to allow the general election to coincide with municipal general elections held on April 9. The winner of the Democratic primary was Robin Kelly and Paul McKinley won the Republican Primary. The Green Party nominated 2010 U.S. Senate candidate LeAlan Jones. (en)
